Description
An endless amount of trash flowing towards the viewer in perpetual motion. Water is a medium of communication, the movement that brings to the surface what was underneath, and carries it with it. The river is then a metaphor of a passage, a course that can bridge two worlds, a transmitter. It can carry you to the other side but can’t take you back. It has been often referred to as a metaphor of time. “You cannot step into the same river twice”, said Heraclitus. In Dante’s Divina Commedia, the river Acheronte provides a passage to the souls of the dead, the definitive route into the underworld. The animation is rendered with a cartoonish look to emphasize the contrast between the seemingly innocent style of the image, and the seriousness of the content. In my mind this project is not meant just as a local socio-political commentary, but it assumes a larger connotation. It is a metaphor of the passage we are facing epochally, with water at the center of the struggle for sustainability and the choices we make or don't make.
