An art project investigating environmental issues
Free access to clean drinking water for all beings
Clean water is an immensely precious resource. Without water there is no life.
iLAND is featuring the most pressing environmental issues. The green iLAND shows arial images from desertification and flooding, to monoculture and mining, the more colorful iland features infrared images of the issues at hand and their progress (restoration or further decay)
How would we care if the world was an island and we were forced to stay on it? Would we see the urgency of a sustainable live style if forest fires, industry and agriculture were polluting our front yard?
Most of the environmental problems we cause are being felt by the poor living far away from us. We forget Fukushima because it didn't poison the fish on our table and we continued to breath the same air when we opened our door. How long can this go on? The two iLAND versions point visually to the various environmental issues that are OUR problem.
iLAND wants to point out the issues visually because there is so much information but so little that touches us. iLAND loves to inspire each of us to live a more sustainable life. Spending less - living more!
