Mixed media sculpture
Kīruru is a multimedia sculpture by Mũchiri Njenga. The sculpture is of a young Afronaut working in a future postapocalyptic time where the Agīkūyū people have rediscovered their ancient ‘ngūgi’ power and used them to mine ‘riūki’ from a passing asteroid, enabling them to use all their ancient 9 senses including teleportation, psychokinesis, telepathy and alchemy.
Kīruru is one of the many transhuman workers, who’ve modified their bodies with digital junk after the fall of the information age civilisation towards the end of the transcendent spiritually ‘woke’ Afrikan civilisation, enabling themselves to work long periods in space without the need to replenish their bodies. Kīruru is a sculptural extract from the Kichwateli series of short films.
