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', Stephenson induldges in and repels against displacements of manipulation, anthropomorphisation and projection.
