Habitat, beyond photography.

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

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

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.
Hábitat, más allá de la fotografía.

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

Mediante la combinación de 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; con elementos cotidianos de la naturaleza se 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.
