amongst those tall trees live a massive community of grey-hooded crows.
a community of scavengers made sustainable thanks to the regular feeding of pic-nic goers.
Impressive and awe inspiring the power of those birds in numbers.
You were here in a nearby valley from where you are in residency now, Fondazione Baruchello.
As part of your stay you are organizing a weekly gathering to discuss the reality of environmental art in this time of emergency.
A blog in Italian is following the development here.
Few questions are being addressed:
Does Art have any possibility of doing anything good and sustainable, rather than just being the expression of waste and a channel for resources otherwise better spent?
Is this current ‘environmental concern’ truly the way cultural practitioner should address the unsustainable way of life we living?
How Art can effectively foster a new understanding of our human placement within the disconnection and bipolarity of Nature-Society?
How can Art be instrumental in fostering symbiotic relevance between all living things?
How can Art, in its position as the utmost display of human evolution (remember, this is Italy, there is an ingrained believe that Art truly is the highest of sciences) revert the anthropocentric reality of such claim to bring back the human at the same level with worms, as only pieces of the whole?
