Project for a Manifesto against pollution | 2018
The work is part of an art project, MANIFESTO AGAINST POLLUTION, including air, soil, water, society, etc. and it is a sculptural continuation of the Paradise Forest project. It is a different approach for different spaces and artistic intentions, for a more human centric approach in terms of dimensions, easier to be modeled in terms of locations, less technical issues. It’s an artistic involvement in the city with a strong visual impact. The project can be temporary or it can be permanent (made of metal). The visitors’ perception varies according to their movement within or without the work.
80-120 wood poles painted in various colours, of 200-250 cm tall, fixed in the ground.
