Land Market

Visual Art

Stefano Parrini

Land Market is a project that analyzes the twisted relationship between globalization and exploitation of natural resources through a series of tragic-ironic photos inspired to land art. Fil-rouge of the subtle criticism is a shopping cart in a natural setting as an installation symbol of the cold and constant intervention of the humanity. This is in order to leave a trace of a reflection on our consumer system and on the impact that it has on our planet.
