WINNER OF 3 AWARDS AT THE TRI POSTAL'S MAKERFAIRE LILLE 2016
Don't look the sun in the eye is a video installation composed of a video projector, a strainer, a world map, 13 mirrors, 2 chains, industrial paint, a few strings and lots and lots of PVC pipes.
Watch the result :
when it comes to the ecological emergency, stop acting blind
The idea is simple: raising awareness by any means.
And if modern society, through TV, movies and advertisements, talks to us as if we were children, then so be it: let's take a fun little smiley face, all innocent and cute, and let's talk about climate change.
Now does it appeal to you? Are you ready to listen?
Maybe not, but it sure is entertaining! And that's what it's all about, isn't it? Blinding ourselves to reality as long as we can get the new iPhone (smiley face happy)?
Let's just remember that our own happiness depends on the well being of our planet, Mother Earth. And to quote Marcel Duchamp: "L.H.O.O.Q", "she's got fire under her ass".
