the air is glowing
about the project / how was it created?
' the air is glowing 'is an installation
created as live painting & presented as part of airgogolfest residency.
It is an extension of environmentally centred 'FLUID 0000' project ,
This project is a reflection on the events of April 26th 1986 ,
exploring human's relationship with
the environment - planet we inhabit, transform.
'this installation is a humble invitation for us
to reflect upon the transformations we personally & collectively generate upon the environment , the planet
to explore a seed of those transformations,
which can be a seed of insolence that generates the ' tragedies ' ,
or a different seed , - an antidote to those tragedies , - humility.
Events of Chernobyl is one of the major lessons that had impact &
continues to impact life on the Planet.
Some may argue that the cause of the accident was a scientific miscalculation, a technological flaw. However, maybe we can find courage to look beyond technology, further towards the motive of human beings misusing the technology
a certain intention of heart that seeded that 'tragedy' and every
environmental crisis ever since...
..- a seed of - insolence.
On a corporate level this seed leads companies to create
irresponsible business models which build tremendous profit
margins that "set our home on fire”.
On an inter - personal level too
This same seed springs us to violent exploitation
of animals & natural resources, each other .
However, just as much as we carry the possibility of insolance
we also carry within - the antidote to it...
This project aims to drive attention to the basic humility we ought to cultivate and extend towards each other, environment we are in - as a primarily solution to current environmental crisis.
