Diana Policarpo investigates gender politics, economic structures, health, and interspecies relations through speculative transdisciplinary research. Visions of Excess is an immersive sound poem that explores the figure of the Goddess in various rituals, alternative symbols and mythological frameworks. If, on the one hand, the poem appropriates the space of Estufa Fria [Cold Greenhouse], on the other, it contaminates it, temporarily transforming the greenhouse into a space that challenges and undermines patriarchal systems of oppression.
