VIDEO INSTALLATION COMMISSIONED BY EEA GRANTS CONFERENCE:
“Too Much Too Little – The Role of Water In Adaptation to Climate Change”, LISBON OCT 2013
THIRST is inspired by water as the core element that is essential to our as well as the organism of the planet that is our home. It speaks of water’s scarcity and the necessity for it. It talks of our intrinsic connection to the earth and environment, the thirst it isn’t anymore able to still. Rain only washes over the earth’s face, as if we would have to still our thirst by letting water run over and only wet our skin.
THIRST tells about the challenges we are facing due to climate change and the related disbalance of presence and availability of water vs. the absence of this finite resource. Its creation has been nurtured by the stories of people who are taking on those challenges, following the vision to support the environment and the land to heal and to regain its capacity to quench its thirst.
THIRST has been created for and was first presented at the “EEA GRANTS CONFERENCE – Too Much, Too Little. The Role of Water in Adaptation to Climate Change.”, 7-9 October at Myriad Hotel, Lisbon, organized by APAMBIENTE and CCIAM.
THIRST was produced in collaboration with BASE Project and during an artistic residency at OBRAS Portugal.
