Sobre la responsabilidad del automóvil y su forma de uso, en la contaminación del planeta.

Pequeños elementos internos del motor de explosión (el corazón del motor) como válvulas de admisión y escape, bujías, árboles de levas, cadenas de distribución, correas, etc; combinados con elementos cotidianos de la naturaleza crean escenarios y metáforas visuales donde nada es lo que parece, los elementos adquieren un significado diferente y a veces completamente opuesto para el cual fueron creados.

Se invita al espectador a la reflexión sobre la relación entre el automóvil y el medio ambiente, la polución, los hábitos de movilidad y nuestros valores al respecto del mismo.

El automóvil, según la agencia europea del medio ambiente, es el responsable del 72 % de la contaminación producida por el transporte. “Hábitat” busca una nueva aproximación visual a este problema explorando la relación entre el desarrollo y el mundo natural.

Es una gran contradicción: potenciamos el desarrollo para vivir mejor pero a la vez estamos destruyendo nuestro medio ambiente.

English Version

Habitat, beyond photography.

About automobile liability and its form of use, in the contamination of the planet.

Small internal elements of the internal combustion engine (the heart of the engine) such as intake and exhaust valves, spark plugs, camshafts, timing chains, belts, etc; combined with everyday elements of nature to create visual scenarios and metaphors where nothing is what it seems. The elements take on a different meaning, and sometimes completely the opposite of what they were created for.

The viewer is invited to reflect on the relationship between the car and the environment, pollution, mobility habits and our values regarding the same.

The automobile, according to the European media agency environment, is responsible for 72% of the pollution produced by transport. "Habitat" look for a new visual approach to this problem exploring the relationship between development and natural world.

It is a great contradiction: we promote development to live better but at the same time we are destroying our environment.
