2nd Law-Entropy (2014) is a site-specific performance about the 2nd law of thermodynamics. “Entropy is the general trend of the universe toward death and disorder” (James R. Newman).
A couple is living under the garbage dump. They eat a plate of fire as a meal, then the woman disappears. A tree hangs on a bigger tree. A carpenter cuts the tree while his boss cuts carpenter’s leg. Simultaneously, another couple is living in an oil barrel. The weird guard man tries to protect the money. The philosopher scans around the place at the same time, his head covered by diapers.
All-natural and technological processes proceed in such a way that the availability of the remaining energy decreases. In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves an isolated system, the entropy of that system increases. Energy continuously flows from being concentrated to becoming dispersed, spread out, wasted and useless. New energy cannot be created and high-grade energy is being destroyed. An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable.
