Architect Rosa Vetrano collaborated with the Canadian Marine Environmental Association to create an installation in Favignana, Sicily, that raises awareness on our polluted seas.
is an ephemeral installation for social awareness created by Rosa Vetrano Architecture in the island of Favignana, Sicily, made in collaboration with The Blue Dream projec – Canadian Marine Environmental Association. Her marine creatures symbolize the sea that must be urgently defended from the pollution caused by the huge amount of plastic that receives daily.
is a multisensory installation that uses a huge amount of recycled plastic, selected, modeled and transformed into bright poetic objects that draw inspiration from the deep sea; the jellyfish is a symbol of clean water. An army of jellyfish floats in suspension where, in the presence of movement, a gradual light is activated; the intensity is proportional to the number of people walking through. The visitor interacts through an emotional experience accompanied by the sound and the smell of the sea that is naturally released all over.
The project originates form the need to create awareness for the protection of the environment and, in particular, of the seas. The partnership between the architect and an important nonprofit association is strengthened to educate people on the damage caused by plastic
. The association offers education by providing expeditions, internships, workshops, seminars, lectures to the public, and artistic events, with a focus on youth, on the topic of plastic pollution and other forms of pollution of the oceans.
