“The last light”

A word from the artist :

“With the intensification of industrial pollution, our living environment is becoming worse and worse, people begin to leave the place where they used to live, the original city becomes desolate. The cracked streets and dilapidated houses stood alone, their last salvation in a gleam of light from the otherwise sultry sky.
Based on photography and processed by filters and AI, the work changed the trees into shabby houses, retained the original light and shadow and cracked ground as the main parts, and then collaged the background of industrial pollution through PS. If industrial pollution continues, it will make our home unlivable.”


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.
