Art that is in a indefinite, moving and reconfigurable space that leads artists to conceive, to program, to deal with. Blending an experimental approach with a real reflection on our spatial and climatic environment, the artist's practice is plural and polymorphic. Each time artworks that are catalysing a new Greening, incorporate a willingness to deal with the environment surrounding us, to reconcile the economical-efficient relationship that finds its meaning in the expression "What you create is what you Get", a slogan that echoes with "Do it yourself”. Furthermore, art is a catalyst for change and militantism, which can foster the climate change emergency.
