Yusuf/Cat Stevens’ updated version of his prescient 1970 lament to environmental destruction, set to an animated video by Chris Hopewell filmed on sets made with recycled materials, including trash from the ocean.
Rain – a bronze statue by Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk featuring a man with a gigantic glass raindrop perched on his upturned face, like a lens or maybe a crystal ball. The artist sez of it:
The raindrop is a symbol of the dialogue which connects a man with a whole diversity of life forms. The figure has a loose and porous structure and relates to dry land, which absorbs water. In this work I play with scale, making a raindrop large enough to compare a man with an insect, considering that man is a part of nature. Moreover, this work concerns the question of interaction and difficulties in coexistence of man with environment.
A bringing together of all manner of publicly available societal/environmental indicators to better identifiy where new city trees should be planted.
