The 1973 sci-fi film "Soylent Green" is set in an overpopulated and polluted Earth where only the super wealthy have access to the luxurious black market of real food. The year is 2022. One of the film's central characters is an elderly intellectual, Sol, who remembers a time when the planet was a place of natural beauty and fresh produce. "Time is People!" merges the artist's and Sol's commiserations of ecological loss into a shared memorializing experience.
"Time is People!" debuted as the video component for "Chaos Ramp", an interactive installation by Jaime Lutzo from the exhibition, "Time-less: Meditations on Headlessness" with Kathy Leisen at Popps Packing November 4-19, 2016.
