N.Lichtig, Ziziphus zizyphus—sound piece, paper work, 2021—



Ziziphus zizyphus is a monologue fomulated from the point of view of the Ziziphus zizyphus plant. Written in the future tense, the plant speaks about its nomenclatural history, its geographic and cultural expansion as well as its chemical power. Progressively, it also describes a future where a sixth mass extinction has taken place and where the Ziziphus zizyphus becomes a “superspecies” colonizing the planet earth.
