earlier that day
Today there are ripe noops all over the elastomer. Their fruits are fragile, and many have withered in the direct sunlight, along with the helpless lives they held. Two of them have grown continuously, side by side, on the same branch. From the day they were able to snap open their sticky eyes, they would watch each other through the misty fruit gel. Each evolved from a blurry nucleus, quickly taking the shape of a fine young noop.
The twins emerge from the torn membranes and stretchy fluids that remain of their shells. Their innocence radiates around them, causing a serene and blissful vibration. Their futures are sacred, and will be defended by the same shark visors that have been worn by many noops before them. They enter this life with a fearless hunger for the unknown, unaware that they are the last generation of their kind.
The noops were conceived in the warm elastomer spring, lost from the beginning. They grew strong in the summer, and then switched to a life of decline, a life that drew towards a painful end, slowly passing into nothing but blackness. This supreme and highly limited figure set marks the beginning and the end of the recurring noop life cycle, closing of the final chapter of the era of jaws.
This rare artists edition includes a 13” noop, packed in a solid paper box with its beloved shark shield (available in white and a rare blush version). They are gently embedded in blue and yellow sponge, waiting to be found and inevitably lost again.

... the end
Standing by the waters edge for what seemed like an eternity, the noop had lost all sense of time. Deeply absorbed in his thoughts. Watching the white caps dancing on the top of the waves; like vultures in the sky they waited for him. Motionless, bearing the last battle his body had to fight out. Fighting for each minute - for every second. His nervous system had almost given in, he could no longer feel the agony.
The elastomer was cruel. This year, the same as last, and all the years before. It squeezed out every last drop from its former seedlings. The color stations that were once fully loaded with wonderful juices had now dried out and today the tubes finally ran empty.
The decline had gained in speed until today, and now began to avalanche. Sweeping away everything and everyone. Unstoppable like a torrential river, the elastomer brought in it's harvest. It finally asserted its right to feed. Feed itself and the next generation.
A sound interrupted his thoughts. He turned around with a jolt. Paw was closing in on him. In previous months he would have made an escape. His heart was pounding but his body had lost the power to move... as paw drew nearer, his instincts urged him to run. But now he could see that even paw's life span had expired. He was just as pale as the noop. And his face without emotion.
Paw stopped right next to him and clasped his hand. Together they stared out to sea as their existence reflected upon them. At the same moment they both knew it was time. They closed their eyes.
