In 1964, Jacques Yves Cousteau conceived the theory of the Homo Aquaticus, describing a future evolution of the human species capable of living underwater. Squid Dinner invites anyone who accepts the risks and dangers of entering an unfamiliar landscape and requires the spectator to become aware of his own abilities of adaptation. Curiosity and mindfulness are necessary during this journey in which water runs its course in a rocky desert. By culminating in the actual demonstration of Cousteau’s theories, utopia is abandoned in favour of a forthcoming reality.
