Hyperart about Hyperobjects
I quite enjoy these. In particular I like how massive they are and how you can't see them fully on the ground. Reminds me of the Nazca lines. Like global warming itself, they are designed to loom over you like giant shadows. Makes me think of Shelley's “A Defense of Poetry”: poets are “the mirrors of the gigantic shadows that futurity casts upon the present.” That guy should've been a speculative realist.
