S1E5 Dionysos

Expendable in Dionysos: Megastructure (2020)

STATEMENT

There is no reuse, repair or recycling. Abandoned structures are completely left to entropic forces. History is thus not heroised, it becomes a witness of the past and serves as a basis for future development of the city. No energy is wasted on abandoned structures, all energy is spent in progress. Therefore, Entropolis is an exposure of the anthropocene.

Entropolis is an ever growing monument. The production of new traces is the driving force behind all creations of the city's inhabitants. All processes are subordinated to this intention. The monument is not a subjective selection of single structures, it is the totality of all structures ever built by the citizen of Entropolis.

TIMELINE CITY

The morphology of the expendable city is based on the principle of architecture designed to be used only once.

The entire city, with all its inhabitants and objects, is designed to be used only once and then abandoned or destroyed. There is no reusing, recycling or repairing. As soon as an object no longer serves its purpose, it is left behind and rebuilt in a new form in front of the city. The process of consuming and recreating leads to a constant movement. The continuous creation of new structures requires a constant adaptation of the inhabitants to their environment.

The history of the city is visible as a forever existing trace. The inhabitants are thus constantly confronted with their past. The confrontation becomes a motivation to tackle and rethink the current problems. Elements of different stages of development, social conditions or political structures remain visible. In the city, a coexistence of objects from different times and different generations is created. The past is not erased or covered up, but slowly reclaimed by a new nature.

The new city collides with the nature that precedes it and forms itself according to it.

The city leaves behind a trace of its own history. This trace encourages and motivates all citizens not to repeat the omissions and mistakes of past generations and instead to create constantly improved conditions for life in the city.

1. All elements of the city may only be used once.

2. The development of the city occurs in a linear expansion.

3. The process of consuming and recreating leads to a constant movement of the city

Everything goes, everything comes back; eternally rolls the wheel of being. Everything dies, everything blossoms again; eternally runs the year of being. Everything breaks, everything is joined anew; eternally the same House of Being is built. Everything parts, everything greets every other thing again; eternally the ring of being remains faithful to itself.

In every Now, being begins; round every Here rolls the sphere There. The center is everywhere. Bent is the path of eternity.

Warhol also noticed that people who went to gallery openings were fascinated not by art on the walls but by the other people around them. The objects were expendabe because life was far more interesting; it was the real art.
