Getting down to writing about Mª José Arceo’s latest artistic project ‘Future Dust’ is as difficult as trying to sum it up in just a few lines. If it’s an origin story you’re after, you could say that it all started with 2014’s eXXpedition Crew, which set sail for Martinique from Lanzarote, crossing the Atlantic as part of UNESCO’s Atlantic Odyssey. 14 women embarked on the journey: scientists, designers, film-makers, biologists, ecologists, and an artist, María. With the help of her expedition partners, she was able to explore the impact of microplastics on our environment and our lives. To achieve this, she started to gather up all the microplastics that she came across in order to create little crystal installations that would be shown in her future exhibits. Anyone who sees one of these artistic interventions finds themselves faced with a poignant story about microplastics that begins and ends with us.

For the past year, Serrano Rivas has been working on her biggest project to date — a lyrical film entitled ‘The Dream follows the mouth (of the one who interprets it)’. Shot within the Swiss Church in London, the film considers the influence that architecture has on activities that exist within, or in relation to it. This is evident in the film’s scenography, which echoes architectural motifs of the building — for example, the mirrored walls and panels, geometric forms and the semicircular shape of the church’s apse.
