The proposal calls for a pause to return on a sensory mode to the origin of all things, the act of breathing.
It is presented in a highly connected way to that vital principle as an immersion experience and reflection from that point of origin, confirming a specific thought process in regards to sustainability in each gesture of our lives.
The gigantic cycles of nature and the physical spheres such as the cryosphere, lithosphere and hydrosphere shape climate and guide life.
The space of the stairs will always be lit with the light coming from the images originating from the large LED screens completely covering the walls.
These sources emulate natural light stemming from the reflection of the source in the portraits of nature.
This proposal is based on the premise of enlarging this space, of constant movement between floors, so that people can place themselves inside the subject, a sighting from within, an invitation to go along surrounded by these large format portraits.
As an example, a waterfall beautifully filmed during daytime and that in different days welcomes us and accompanies us ascending or descending the stairs.
We later witness a macro view of the water, striking in a different manner for the immersion of the details of its fluidity.
I stop for just an instant to observe with the heart.
The millennium old ice tells us our planet's history, keeping a registry of the cycles of each molecule of frozen water.
The breathing of our planet alive through the volcanoes, is another step that will be shown, as it is an important part of these cycles. The vast desert that allows for fast waves of dry winds.
A message of unrest will also be present in the shape of a chronometer to remind us of the accelerated pulse of deterioration of climate that for the sake of humanity must be dealt with in an urgent manner.
Texts based on scientific research will follow under this chronometer in order to grant us the necessary reflections.
Sound Design :
The sound will be directly recorded in the sites where the images are captured and it will be accurately reproduced from reality.
The incessant weaving sounds of the water they make in moving, the painful cracking of the ice and polar winds, the desert and its restless sound telling their stories.
The sound presentation will be edited with a very restrained harmony accompanying the images.
Dear Maddy and Kris,
thank you for the privilege of presenting these ideas.
"Because all biological processes need cycles, these processes are paired: Breathing is the paired reaction to photosynthesis. Photosynthesis uses water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen and “sugars” (organic material), and when we breathe we use this “sugar” and oxygen and transform this back to water and carbon dioxide. But it is the dynamic nature of our planet, with its moving plates, colliding continents, subsidence of ocean plates, growth of mountains and volcanoes that ultimately allows this cycle to close, and hence life to exists. As one of the principles of climate sciences states: Life on earth depends on, is shaped by and affects climate."

The points of view :
The installation will be made specifically for this transit area, being designed according to its dimensions.
The large screen that surrounds all the angles is totally and partially visible in its route, even so from the next floor.
"This sequence of falling ice reminds us of the constant transformations taking place on our planet. Matter is neither created nor destroyed but transformed.
Life evolved on earth about 3,800 million years ago because Earth is at the right distance from the sun, it has liquid water and it allows cycles."
