Welcome to the Environmental screening!

Aerial view and abstract presentation of different polluted sites across Europe. In order to meet the demand for raw materials, we create more by-products and toxic waste than ever. For the growing world we need copper, iron, concrete, plastic, fertilizers, electric power, to name a few. Producing these resources contributes significantly to global warming and the pollution of our planet, our Home. The video explores ash ponds, red mud ponds, and chemical residue pools, hidden or unreachable places, from a new angle. It stimulates an aesthetic response, and thus dialogue about our destructive tendencies. The ambiguity of what is depicted, not to mention the apparent toxicity suggested by the saturated colors pervading these colossal human-made sites, leaves spectators with an overall sense of alarm. This series plays on the effective duality of attraction and abhorrence, contrasting water pollution and the healing power of water while focusing on our own complicity in pollution and art’s complicity in barbarism.
