Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era
Viscous Expectations: Justice, Vulnerability, The Ob-scene
A fable for adults, Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era is a tale of decolonization and climate justice. Past, present, and future overlap through phantasmagorical encounters with historic heroes such as Spinoza, Rachel Carson, Jacques Cousteau, and Harriet Tubman and 21st century villains like Nestlé, Merck, Exxon, and Monsanto—Big Pharma, Big Oil, and Agribusiness giants that stalk the planet.
Orchestrating text and color photography through the lens of vulnerability, Viscous Expectations: Justice, Vulnerability, The Ob-scene explores embodied democracy as the intersection of social ecology, permaculture, technology, aesthetics, eroticism, and ethnicity. Alhadeff demonstrates the potential for social resistance and a rhizomatic reconceptualization of community rooted in difference—and a socio-erotic ethic of ambiguity that disrupts codified normalcy.
