Delta del Ebro, Spain – 2010
The GAL·LA project was created as part of the first planetary art exhibit called “eARTh” curated by 350.org. It was created on the beach of the Delta del Ebro in Spain using shade material and wooden posts. Designed as a sun stencil, the piece was made to bring attention to the problem of sunlight/heat that cannot escape back into space because of greenhouse gases. I chose a little girl named Gal·la who lives in the Delta del Ebro and created this icon in her likeness, an icon to symbolize all the reasons for the world to act today. Her portrait was constructed using a labyrinth design to allude to the tenacity of the human spirit to find a solution.
