  • Koyaanisqatsi = Unbalanced Life
     
    The installation presents itself both as a critical analysis of the themes depicted, and as an extended investigation on the subject of man vs earth. A visual and interactive interpretation of current affairs.
     
    We started our thinking while watching the following documentaries.
  • Koyaanisqatsi (1982) - Godfrey Reggio
  • Home (2009) - Yann Arthus-Bertrand
  • We are part of a greater system. All our social, economic or environmental decisions, rely on the realization that the world functions as a whole. 
     
    If today we can safely imagine a man on a moon, 50 years ago that same possibility was seen with skepticism. Today we face other discussions. In a world where information travels at high-speed, we try to examine how fast language can keep up with this new rhythm, recognizing human beings' preponderance and responsibility as individuals, as citizens.
  • Think global, act local.
    Buckminster Fuller
     
  • Buckminster Fuller created a new model as an alternative to conventional maps. This projection shows
    us an objective look at our world, preserving shapes and sizes without splitting any continents.
  • Most of the time, we live our lives within these invisible systems, blissfully unaware
    of the artificial life, the intensely designed infrastructures that support them.
     
    Bruce Mau, Massive Change

    The broken projection is filled with people, connections and interactions. Without them it fails.

  • Our language is in a state of vast humiliation.
    It no longer  describes the world in which we live.
    Godfrey Reggio
