WINGS OF WASTE
We live in a distorted world of capitalism and globalisation where the Earth continues, day by day, to be polluted. We have a choice: to continue to turn a blind eye; to refuse to contemplate these issues, or we can take the easy option to keep piling up more products, more clothes, more plastic – more garbage. However, the accumulated waste does not disappear. It remains, in a place far away, where we cannot see it. For example, in an Asian country. Or in the oceans.
Wings of Waste is a reflection on modern Western society. This work examines the freedoms we in the West take for granted as we have created and live an extremely comfortable life. Or at least for some. Where instead of examining and finding solutions for the root of the problem, we treat the surface, the things that are visible – we paint it beautifully, so we don’t see the rotten interior. But the price of this great “freedom” is that we have become a society where we put our own lives at risk.
