Best Before, a science fiction narrative, draws a dystopia of the future and refers to consumption and depletion of resources. It deals with questions of anticipated value perceptions. Due to crude oil exhaustion, the last drops of oil transform into precious jewellery material like that of gold. Telling a story about depletion, the work is executed the same. If a piece is worn, oil parts are slowly melting through body temperature. Clothes and golden skeletons remain; nevertheless they still communicate the loss.
The work is meant to be thought-provoking, towards initiating new solutions for the future.
