Self-portrait as a Tasaday


Information processing is the portent of post-industrial capitalism, it is also the summit of its own inevitable crisis says the French art curator Nicholas Bourriaud. But instead of interpreting the doom endlessly, at the corner end of the world we are chanting our magical spell for its ultimate collapse! With this demise I call upon the gods of Disaster to render its final blow of decapitating the Apocalyptic nature of human civilization!

In Disaster we trust, says the second generation Tasaday – Jean Makisig! In Disaster we believe our redemption just like every snap of camera obscura!
