    I think it must be very frustrating discovering, or -as in this case- certifying, the approach of a catastrophe and not being understood, believed or given ear to
    Pasolini explained that the “death” of a man is not when he isn’t allowed to talk but instead, it takes place when what a man says is no longer understood.
    This series could be called “FICTION”. In fact, almost anything we can see is what appears.
    I dedicate this work to all researchers, both men and women, who work for the IPCC Institute and for the ONU.
    Just a few days ago we were reassured, in the almost general indifference, that (thanks to the atmosphere’s gradual warming) the CO2 won’t smother the planet. It will do this the billions of methane’s cubic meters, now frozen at the bottom of the oceans, instead.
    This representation of the elements, which is not meant to be exhaustive but iconographic and synthetic, becomes nearly an exorcism.
    This is an exercise of representing visual memory (I reproduce what I remember) waiting to become cataloging (I reproduce what no longer exists).
    Wikipedia defines “exorcism” as “the practice of evicting demons or other spiritual entities from a person, an area or an animal they are believed to have possessed”.
    Exorcise (ward off, distance a possible adverse event) is my intent. Will this be enough?
    I do not believe so.
