The incident of oil spillage from the offshore oil pipeline, accompanied by black smoke billowing out from the burning of fossil fuels, seems to be a symbol depicting the insatiable human demand for finite resources. Despite human attempts to control nature through various technologies, even the slightest error can have a catastrophic impact on the environment.

เหตุการณ์การรั่วไหลของน้ำมันจากท่อส่งน้ำมัน กลางทะเล ควันสีดำที่พวยพุ่งออกมา จากการเผาไหม้เชื้อเพลิงฟอสซิล  เหมือนเป็นสัญลักษณ์ที่ แสดงถึง การใช้ทรัพยากรของมนุษย์ที่มีความต้องการไม่มีที่สิ้นสุด  แม้ว่ามนุษย์จะพยายามใช้เทคโนโลยีต่างๆเพื่อควบคุมธรรมชาติมากแค่ไหน สุดท้ายความผิดพลาดเพียงน้อยนิดได้สร้างผลกระทบทางสิ่งแวดล้อมอย่างมหาศาล

In the "Man-Made Apocalypse" exhibition, Supmanee Chaisansuk explores the human nature and the impact of human actions on the environment, as well as the consequences that we face.

Previously working as a research architect, she often worked with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to simulate and understand the movement of smoke and fog, leading to her fascination with their shapes and movements which inspired this exhibition.

The artist examines various issues using the symbolism of smoke and fog. Through these symbols, she conveys the alarming consequences that impact our health and the planet, emphasising the inevitability of an apocalyptic outcome. Additionally, Supmanee employs geometrical elements to highlight how human nature is at the root of these problems.

Supmanee delves into the consequences of human greed, capitalism, and consumerism on the environment. These harmful practices have led to irreversible environmental disasters, like forest fires caused by clearing land for contract farming and prioritising benefits of emission-secreting manufacturers over our rights to receive clean air. The exhibition also highlights other contributing factors, such as false emissions reporting and unethical profits gained through the exploitation of consumerism, agriculture, industrialisation, and war.
