Japanese South African artist Saya Woolfalk may have correctly identified one of the most dangerous ailments of our time: what she calls "Empathy Deficit Disorder (EDD)." Luckily, she's made contact with the Empathics, a race of women who can combine their genes with plants. These women promise to show you, the museum-goer, the secret of their process: "absorbing vapors that spread digitally on the walls and floor." Woolfalk's narrative, fleshed out with sculpture and digital installations, resembles the flip side of eco-horror like Annihilation; unlike in these works of pop culture, where hybridization and mutation mean our doom, these metamorphoses represent an escape from the evil that circumscribes and defines the human race.
