A word from the artist :

“Elements: The main body of the picture is extremely strong light and shadow, architecture, eye-catching colors, and an image of an extremely prosperous modern city. Hanging high in the sky is the moon, and a shadow is hidden in it.

Against the blinding city lights, is there a moon this bright? Will there be a shadow over the light? Under light pollution, the moon is just a “light source” that has been assimilated in people’s minds. Is it absurd that the only remaining shadow hangs on the moon under light pollution? All in all pointing to the fact that any shadow under light pollution is an unrealistic fantasy. No matter how detailed, the shadow is the image of a dead bird. Under the light, the bird can no longer survive, dying and dying in the shadow. The hazards of light pollution are highlighted.”


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.
