Haptic, gaudy and vibrational, Eco-labelled with God’s Blessing is an oceanic, metaphysical wasteland that falls outside of the

scope of science and religion, influencing how we define trauma, resilience and recovery. 

Heavily informed by Jean Painlevé’s 1972 avant-garde documentary Acera, Or the Witches Dance and Rebecca Tamás

Strangers: Essays on the Human and Non-Human, Eco-labelled with God’s Blessing externalises the horror of the living reality of

the moment by paradoxically indulging in and repelling against environmental displacements of manipulation,

anthropomorphisation and projection.
