In his film installation, Tilius Sodeika questions the constructs of nature and explores his metaphysical coordinates of living in the rise of climate change era. Tilius analyses how semiotic relations with nature are constructed by interviewing Professor Teun Terpstra, a researcher in climate change psychology. The film merges abstract with scientific, resulting in a visual poem that confronts the viewer with nature’s sublime, delivered with a turbulent, at times frightening, phonic range. The island screen installation invites the audience to experience the film from multiple perspectives: a gesture that urges one to reshape their perception of nature.
Rebecca Solnit wrote “These are clearly not events to be wished for, yet they bring out the best in us and give us a common purpose”.

He then synthesised those findings with the prediction models of climate change to, which allowed him to scale the concept and called it ‘hyperdisaster’ as it stretches further in time and space than an individual’s life. Tilius Sodeika used Extinction Rebellion protest movement to study the effects of hyperdisaster, exploring the global identity of the movement and it’s reasons, he could speculate on a further societal development in the geological era of the anthroposcene.
