    About The Work

    Black letters reading HAHAHA bluntly hover over an arid landscape, the ground is broken up, and nothing grows anymore. Claudia Comte combines comic language with the aesthetics of mass production to foreground a pervasive cultural effect of our times in the sensation of ecological anxiety. In the language of comics, protagonists are often personified as evil by the glee they outwardly express at the misfortune or distress of others: ‘HAHAHA' to explosions, disappearances, and pratfalls. HAHAHA affirms a tragedy at the same time as articulating a pleasure derived from harm. In bringing this comic language to bear on images of anthropogenic destruction such as drought, Claudia Comte explores the ways in which humans arrive at ethics through a visual language, asking whether the ubiquity of these images mobilizes or desensitizes us.
