PANDEMICDESIGN. ASPHALT LEFTOVERS

Posted by: Luca Gnizio

Nature survives the man who, in the midst of the pandemic, escapes the contagion by locking himself in the house, now trap and refuge. Outside time moves on: while human beings disappear, thin blades of grass break the road. New buds take over a not anthropized world. 

The era of Anthropocene is translated into three elements, a chair, a table and a painting, with strong references to domestic life, closed in an animated circle of garbage bags, a metaphor of daily global pollution. This story visually ends with “Forlastdrop”: a sculpture chair, obtained from the recycling of terracotta waste. The cracks recall the burnt earth, leading us to think about how climate is changing more and more quickly and how disasters are becoming less and less predictable as a result. A small bud is the witness that the land that hosts us is the strongest one.
