Descrizione Opera / Biografia


In «Tribute to Cargo Cults» I make connection with cultures less technologicaly developed than ours to point out surprising similarities between us. The way Curgo Cults built wooden replicas of western technology objects hoping to get more cargo from modern gods reminds us of our own pop-cultural worship of hi-tech gadgets and modern pop-gods. I also want to point out the ecological component and point out that environmental change and ecological problems arose long ago when a man tame the first animal and planted the first plant and began to change the environment.
