INHABITING THE SILENCE
There are places in the world where breathing clean air is an almost impossible situation, countries like China, India, Iran, Pakistan and Mexico top this list. The health consequences are catastrophic, we can see people with respiratory diseases, chronic asthma and allergies. One of the main causes of these problems is massive deforestation, an activity that to date has destroyed 50% of the forests on planet earth and leaves us with unfortunate climate change for future generations.
Inhabiting Silence is a mini installation planned to take a larger format that tells us about those who have no voice, those who cannot defend themselves, those who help us purify the air, offer us food and even their wood.
With this project, my intention is to create an experience that evokes a sense of
discomfort intended to provoke self-reflection about what we do and do not do to help the environment.
