ENVIRONMENTAL OBLIVIONMaggie Stiefvater: “If I were a tree, I would have no reason to love a human”.
Humans often disregard the importance of nature and only start caring about it when it’s too late and when it starts to affect our own lives.
This display takes the mentality humans have about nature and switches it; making nature disregard our existence and importance. When someone is facing the camera a natural element will appear over their face. The more people that are there, the more elements fill the screen. The images stay the same unless someone presses a key to change it; symbolizing how humans only create change when they desire and when it is convenient for them.
