Two Ponds

stories from the petroleum space-time continuum

Through a tale of two ponds, this zine introduces us to the Petroleum Space-Time Continuum: the reality we inhabit, as filtered by our fossil fuel consumption.

Bloom writes:

I use the term petro-subjectivity to describe the impacts of fossil fuel use on your sense of self and the world around you. I investigate how petro-subjectivity forms. This helps me think through the long term culture people need to shift from experiencing the world through fossil fuel induced relationships. Petro-subjectivity comes from somewhere and some-process. You can locate and analyze numerous examples in daily situations. Petro-subjectivity emerges from fossil-fuel-induced spatial and temporal relationships that shape the metaphorical structures governing your neural pathways. These conditions often prevent you from having a directly embodied sense of where you are.
