I have identified six interesting synonyms of pollution: contamination, tampering, infection, poisoning, alteration and decomposition and its opposite: the purity.
I decided to explain the pollution with these eight words and to represent the ambiguity of this issue through a series of photographs.
Was important the phase of photo retouching, different for each photograph.
I also decided to give further addition, manually drawing over photographs to mark even more concepts that I wanted to represent. I drawn on a transparent sheet over the photograph so as to allow to add or remove the drawing.
The use of my body and my hand drawing allowed me to made the project more personal and physical.
I think it's interesting that the origin of the word pollution, the baby in the cradle, has been transformed into myself that almost drowns in a tub increasingly polluted and poisoned.
Each chapter / word begins with a symbol that resembles the chemical symbols and the dictionary page in which is contained the definition of that word. Here, too, I used a manual deletion of the words, similar to information pollution and distortion, but they can be reported to the truth. This is a very popular topic today and this deletion process creates unexpected and diverted phrases, changing the original meaning. Is terrible and curious what you can find in a dictionary.
