WORK > Point of no return

’Point of no return’ is an examination of the relationship between human beings and nature. With a portrait study of a wrapped-up tree as part of a construction site, I want to draw attention to an unsettling and ongoing environmental wrongdoing. The violent human interference with nature’s balance has left deep scars. Climate change is upon us, and 2015 is a critical year for action on that matter. As we rapidly approach the tipping point beyond which climate change may become irreversible, we risk inflicting one of the greatest injustices in human history, denying future generations their right to a liveable, sustainable planet.

I created the series ‘Point of no return’ as a wake-up call for you and me. How far have we gone? Depriving a tree of its rustling nature and interfering with the free movement of its gestalt serve as metaphors for the grave dangers threatening our blue planet. If we fail to act now, all of humanity stands to lose.
