“Warming Earth”

A word from the artist :

“Design starting point: a series of environmental problems caused by global warming will eventually affect the balance of the entire ecosystem.

Elements of the picture: The center is the main body of the picture: the melting earth layer by layer. The outermost layer is the earth that is well protected under the awareness of environmental protection, the middle is the human head, and the inner part is the skull. It means that if the environment is not protected, human beings will eventually eat their own fruit and move towards the end to warn human beings. The background around is gradually changing from cold color to warm color, which means that the earth temperature is getting higher and higher.”


About the IDEARTS

Art can be defined in a thousand different manners. In today’s world, it is increasingly regarded as a way to learn and share about sustainability and green technologies; as a lever to raise awareness on climate change and throw light on workarounds for global warming; as a means to better understand the problematics of our times and the prospects for our future.

For its very first edition, Vadviam’s IDEARTS programme has invited Architecture and Landscape Architecture students from renowned Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design to create artworks intended to illustrate environmental issues and offer solutions for global sustainability.
