This somehow indicates how our common idea of life being a linear time-frame is a big (and possibly dangerous) misconception. Whether we think of life from the perspective of an individual, culture, economics or even the planet, there is really no beginning or end.
Our problems, the climate crisis and mass extinction we see around us, is also affecting jellyfish.
Being a human, in the sense of being able to anticipate consequences and thus being responsible to take action requires a lot of effort and change. This is where I sometimes wish to be a jellyfish.Thinking of the life of a jellyfish and human influences on underwater life, has been one of the starting points for creating our “How long is a wave?” -collection. The bell-like figure of a jellyfish, Aurelia Aurita (Korvameduusa), has been the main influence for the balloon sleeved Aurelia dresses and jackets of the collection.
