“We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action [pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement] could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulfuric acid,” Hawking said.”
After researching before building up my new project I had a clear understanding on how my it would look and how it would translate a message that Stephen Hawking had already spoken before his death, around a month ago.
I researched about Stephen Hawking, his theories, his last appearances and talks.
“Last year, Hawking warned in a BBC documentary that in order for humanity to save itself from the threats of climate change, disease, and overpopulation we need to colonize Mars within 100 years.
“By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children,” he said.
My project would be formed of people, because as people we are the main issue. People queuing on a very long queue, different characters queuing in the exact same way, no matter the sex, age, culture, no rules, no first and no last, who gets there before, they are all there respecting each other. That is how I see it, that is how I imagine our last day on Earth.
After researching the company SpaceX;
“SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.” gave me the idea to connect what Stephen Hawking left us as a last statement of his studies. I imagined the simplicity and beauty of people queuing and what they would do while they are standing or waiting.
