The relationship between humans and Nature has always existed. In the last centuries the human intention was to outclass Nature by building cities and infrastructures around it.
Nonetheless, Nature has always tried to break through the obstacles that men placed. It has tried hard to find its way and “contaminate” what humans had built.
Having had the chance to explore my empty city during the recent pandemic wave made me focus on peripheral paths: this sort of no man's land, which I keep on exploring. All these places where Nature started a sort of re-appropriation of its own space - a resistance - against the human structure. Sometimes, this would create fantastic shapes. The dialogue between Nature and humankind has been on for centuries, but – as many other things – we often don't pay attention to it.
This can also be seen as a collective act against phenomena bigger than us. Thus, Resistance becomes a state of mind, which will probably accompany us in the years to come.
This ongoing series reflects on the importance of such attitude, being it chosen or not.
