Gathering: Sandra Díaz
We breath the air the plants exhale, as well as the plants inhale the air we exhale. Copper is running through our brains and gives us memory. Wind carries clouds, that carry water, that carries life.
We are connected to everything around us, but man’s longtime supremacy has brought this natural relation to nature out of balance and the environment and climate into a crisis.
On Thursday, October 29, 2020, Art Hub gathered several visual artists and scientists for an evening with exploration and exchange of thoughts, concerns, perspectives, and ideas about man’s fascinating but difficult and fragile connectedness with the outside world.
Sandra Díaz should have been participated, but due to Covid-19 she was prevented from travelling to Copenhagen, and instead she sent this video contribution.
