What actions should we take as we see through this mirror planet? Artist David Aiu Servan-Schreiber considers that human existence has to be part of nature and his consciousness. This inside-out approach to our environment challenges us to take action towards our Planet.
His series Planets offer a magnetic contemplation amidst the hustle and bustle of our lives. A well needed moment to stop and reflect. To appreciate what is inside and around us, and gives us a golden chance to unearth life lessons and take action.
The primitive representation, as an integration of all parts, makes us assimilate both worlds in one. We recognise the external world as part of us and translate into reality the world within us.
Where is this emotional connection leading us?
Emotions are universal, and they are complex. Cognitive theories have shown that states of feeling can result in physical and psychological changes that influence our behaviour, so to be in touch with our emotions can fundamentally change us. Eventually, it’s an emotional trigger that brings an action. David gives us a sense of wonder and inspire us to feel, and act accordingly.
Can these Planets lead us to our own revolution?
The series Planets have the ability to evoke and communicate emotions and the ability to affect how we feel about ourselves or, our planet. Consequently, an invitation to answer the greatest, the most urgent question of our present time: to explore the inextricable links between us and our environment, from our need to reach some kind of faith to lead our human behaviour in the world, and challenge the values by which we live. How come that we can connect so deeply with the symbol of a planet yet be so destructive towards our host?
