These are a set of experimental photo illustrations/collages I had done for an art competition a couple of years ago. I mixed many photos, (all three are my family at home and/or on vacation) at different moments of time in different places. Garbage dumps, flotsam and other waste are the symbols of our consumerist nature as human beings. Can we help it?
These quasi realistic images are now collecting dust in my hard drive. I had a dream of projecting them on various walls; in a controlled environment of a gallery; on public walls in the streets; in shopping malls as digital screens; even as digital screens jutting out of a landscape or simply junked in garbage dump as an art installation.
What do you think? Are they shocking enough to spread a message if they turned up in any of the above mentioned forms in your neighbourhood? Would we ever be able to give our children the beautiful planet we inherited, or as someone said have we successfully snatched it from them?
