The overall visual narrative will be built on the duality between life and death, nature and concrete, rural and urban, beautiful and ugly, etc. In a way, these dichotomies open our eyes to the contrasts between the full-of-life natural elements and the prevailing destruction of all that relies on the human hand.
For example, the motif of abandoned buildings will be frequently used to raise the question: What happens when a place loses its function? What happens when a hospital or a legal institution is no longer ‘behaving’ as such? Like coffee without caffeine, these ‘bodies’ do not perform the function they were intended to. Abandoned places literally symbolise the emptiness and destruction such a phenomenon has on people’s lives.
On the other hand, this visual narrative will also capture the resilient character of nature, sometimes manifested in the form of a tree growing out of a house that is falling apart, or parsley growing out of a hole in the concrete. These ‘accidental compositions’ will be there to remind us that despite opposition, life always finds a way.
