ozotron 001

Hi, My name is Rudolf Kohn. I am a Colombian artist who lives in Miami for last 20 years. I want to share a series of work from circa 2006 called Ozotron 2027. As the Covid-19 Pandemic continues to sweep the planet, reset our lives and our earth, the Ozotron series depicted a similar dyer planetary situation. This series was developed from a vision I had that showed me a very different life if we did not change our behavior as humans. I became very involved with this concept spreading the message. For ten years I worked with this concept producing many drawings, paintings, performances, and installations. The story of Ozotron is important for us [me] at this pivotal moment. I remember what I created in the past. My artistic spirit searches for content- for another vision. I look into the future and see the golden light at the end of the tunnel. I realize the planet has been screaming for our attention. This virus is a forced mechanism, a message from the earth for us to slow down, to remember what is important and how to take care of it. It touches our hearts with sadness on the deepest of levels as it destroys our people, yet our planet regenerates. We learn how to be family again. We learn how to grow food again and how be present in simplicity. Life has forever changed but we grow in compassion and spirit as we shine our resilience into the future of possibilities. Please check out the story of Ozotron written on my website and the many aspects of the Ozotron society. Enjoy the content of the series lightly and support local art. The Ozotron is an artistic proposal based on the idea of a futuristic society where Man’s work, his very rhythm of life and the development of a society has changed the life of the planet. Decades of constant pollution and waste has lead mankind down this road. It has resulted in the greatest loss of life and natural resources in the history of our planet. We stand at the absolute brink of destruction. The end of human life and the absolute anhilation of the planet. Mankind’s constant pollution finally caused for a large hole to open up in our ozone layer unleashing the full fury of the Sun. The very fabric of our being is contamina-ted. This contamination has forced those who survived to adapt to an ever shrinking world with no clear hope in sight. In the face of this destruction man is forced to adapt and more so evolve. Mankind finds itself with no pure air. The contaminated world forces those alive to adapt by using an advanced apparatus able to convert and create breathable air. The Ozotron is forced to live in sealed spaces aptly called a Bunker. They use large scheme air purificator’s while inside these bunker’s to create breathable air. The Ozotron with the help of proper sealed masks were also able to create a portable form of this purificator so advanced that it can be chewed like the present day chewing gum. Evolution being such a constant force, the Ozotron follows the Homo-sapien on our evolution chart. A being absolutely concious of the damaged caused by their ancestors before them and more so the very reason of their forced existance. He or She lives for the basic function of survival by gathering the basic elements of life, something taken for granted by present day Man. In this forced world the only memories of the nature are those stored and registered by the ancestors of the Ozotron. They have stored treasures, sounds of animals, and images of the phenomenon’s in nature such as wind, rain, rays of sunlight, rivers and the sea. Some venture as far as growing a plant in their small spaces in their bunker with a great deal of difficulty. Their pets now are those very hated cockroaches of our present day. It serves them as a memory of that which survived and reminds them of where they came from. The hated insect now becomes a needed friend. The technology of the Ozotron is based on purifying everything in order to to survive. Its science is based on studying closely the behaviour of those that came before them. Their goal is to recover what was lost by returning to the simple and natural life that we still see in present day times in remote areas. The Ozotron lives of their technological advancment. They conquer the quest and science of time travel. They travel to the past in a different form with a warning of times to come. They travel with the hope that Mankind will correct their destructive ways. We see early forms of that type on conciousness in our present day artists and politicians fighting for our green Earth. The Ozotron fights so that the world corrects that and them as species, don't have to Exist.
