About EXTINCT SPECIES Collection

Living next to the sea, made me reflect on the countless ways we use and enjoy it. But what do we give in exchange? We’re bombarding it with pollution or practice extensive over fishing. We’ve opened a circle of negative reciprocity that in order to close it, we need to change the pole by giving what we want to receive.

Because of global warming, we could be facing a sweeping loss of species in the near future. The collection does not wish to be a prediction or a snapshot of future’s memories, but more of a meditation upon the beauty of marine life that could extinct, trying to bring awareness and to find new ways to engage people in thinking and taking action on critical issues of climate change and extinction due to human intervention. We shouldn’t build monuments for mourning the past, for what we cannot change, but for now, while we can still change the present course of marine life.
