Danger Zones 2022/2023
Where is violence there is always a trace. Where there is conflict there is memory that serves as reference for resolution in the future.
With the series of “Danger Zones”, I imagine our future-self throughout past and present histories of human tectonic activities and their agencies. I am exploring future landscapes that derive from present and past unresolved conflicts against nature and each other.
