Keeping the combustion engine alive in a fossil-free future.
Uitsloot shows us an alternative vision of our future, one that keeps the combustion engine alive and more importantly, one that celebrates the power of do-it-yourself and the individual agency this brings. By harvesting fuels directly from local ponds or ditches, I try to make us aware of the processes that are hidden away in the backgrounds of our lives and the infrastructures that sustains us. This does not only provide a new and more direct understanding of how desire, effort, reward and impact balance out but also a true alternative for our future.
