the Lungs   2019

Two leafy branches form the shape of two lungs, in breathing mode until viewers use flame to activate what seems to set the leafy lungs on fire which only ceases when the flame is put out.

Protecting the Amazon is often said to be one of the most effective ways to battle climate change. Just like the lungs of the earth, it absorbs billions of tons of carbon emissions every year. The rainforest is also home to indigenous people. Yet, deforestation continues to occur not only in the Amazon, but also elsewhere in the world.
