A word from the artist :

“Everything has traces of its existence. Growth rings, which are traces left by nature; Cities are traces left by human civilization. But when human beings endlessly destroy nature and encroach on the territory of other life, many traces of animals and plants have quietly disappeared… Water can carry boats and capsize boats, and only when human strength coexists in harmony with nature can human beings have a better living environment and a better life.”


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.
