In this era, material and economic interests have surpassed interest in nature and other lifeforms present on Earth. For the past several centuries our society has been in conflict with nature. We survive in a system that brings destruction to all forms of life on Earth. Our physical and psychological relationship with Nature is distant and fragile, but more importantly, most people ignore it. The science of ecology is misunderstood and not adopted on a wide scale, even when people are confronted with human and environmental tragedies almost every day. The human being seems to be completely blind in front of this solution.
I feel that my generation is the one that will have to deal with those issues, changing and adapting our habits under the constraint of a necessity to fix the mistakes committed in the past. This has awakened in me a sense of responsibility about the environment and that is what my new project is about.
The idea behind NO MAN’S LAND arose from the intention of showing the relationship between nature and the human beings. My focus will traverse multiple levels, from basic natural elements to complex organisms, and finally the human being. The intention is to create an installation that subtly speaks in a metaphoric way about the environmental crisis and therefore the ongoing crisis of the human being.
