In the Future Friture series, sugar sunken into cooking-oil is used in enlarged portraits of miniature organisms such as the freshwater Cnidarian ‘Hydra’ living in different temperate and tropical regions, or the jellyfish ‘Turritopsis dohrnii’ living in the Mediterranean and Japanese sea. In nature these organisms have a very special lifespan where they revert into an immature state and later grows old again, in a continuous process between old and young, making them immortal. The Future Friture series touches upon our yearning for immortality – from ancient belief systems to the present, where rapidly growing technologies and mergence of biology and computational science makes prospects of eternal life seem plausible within few decades.
