A word from the artist :

“In today’s society, sustainable design is developing with the progress of The Times. Meanwhile, designers’ concept of sustainable development is increasingly advancing with The Times. In the process of the continuous development of society, the problem of environmental resources has become a major problem that should be solved at present. The design concept of low carbon and environmental protection is an important means to alleviate the current environmental problems. It is also an important design concept to improve the human and natural environment and establish the benign development of the circular economy. To represent the living subject of the city, we mainly use the method of contrast, with clouds as the boundary, below are the polluted urban ruins, and above is the dreamlike urban garden. The main body of the lower part is built with iron bars, and the main body of the upper part is made of foam strips. The installation aims to express the idea of a better urban life and call on people to practice the concept of low-carbon environmental protection and promote global sustainable development.”


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.
