A word from the artist :

“The design theme of the work: “Earth’s death – electronic pollution”. This work presents a possibility of the future in a set of four pictures – the earth is seriously polluted due to people’s improper use and disposal of electronic products. The focus of the work lies in the third picture. The author was inspired by Jesus on the cross, using the battery as the cross and the earth as Jesus to draw this image. This work is intended to warn people to protect the environment and not to get the ending of the work in the picture.”


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.
