“Evolution is taking place and as we change (and possibly destroy) the fundamental of our life on this planet a new species is taking form – welcoming these changes as their fundamental for life. What we describe as environmental disasters are potential feeding grounds for the new species.” 
Tine Surel Lange is concerned with the climate crisis and her current works are saturated in the fear of environmental destruction as well as the new opportunities and life forms that might evolve from that. “Desert Creatures: The Salton Sea” is a continuation of an ongoing project; an audiovisual extravaganza with magic realist flourishes.
