resistance (ongoing)

The relationship between humans and Nature has always existed. In the last centuries the human intention was to outclass Nature by building cities and infrastructures around it.

Nonetheless, Nature has always tried to break through the obstacles that men placed. It has tried hard to find its way and “contaminate” what humans had built.

The recent pandemic waves made me focus on peripheral paths across different cities, which I had the chance to come across. All these places where Nature started a sort of re-appropriation of its own space - a resistance against the human structure. Sometimes, this would create fantastic shapes. The dialogue between Nature and humankind has been on for centuries, but – as many other things – we often don't pay attention to it.

This ongoing series reflects on the interconnection between these two realities.
