Climate change and environmental issues may appear distant from the individual's point of view, in the shadow of a major crisis that would give rise to actions to prevent the worst outcome. In light of abstract problem solving, helplessness may dishearten the individual’s belief in the ability to influence the situation. Therefore, it is important that we keep talking about climate change and environmental issues because we can all make a difference by taking positive action now.
The Prelude project utilizes art as a means to evoke ecological awareness. It also takes into account the virtual space as a potential venue for its platform, enhancing the availability of its message. The project includes the following work: The Core of Eden, The Tune, Untitled Dreams, Paradox and The GuestBoard, an interactive mirror with hashtag magnets, enabling viewers to share their eco-friendly actions on social media.

THE VIRTUAL SPACE OF AN ALTERNATIVE REALITY
Exploring and creating a virtual tour, the Prelude project will go viral in the near future, as a 360° panorama tour: a collage of photographs, illustrations, video, sound and interactive possibilities. Each work of art evolves within the concept of its message and in the spirit of the Prelude project.
Abandoned plants in greenhouses. Frozen air, trapped in ice.
Unveiling a divided landscape in the motion of change.
What do we see and what do we want to believe, being seen?
THE CORE OF EDEN
The distant tune of an artificial seashell.
A sculpture perhaps, yet futuristic
with echoes of plastic garbage and environmental change.
The subdued drum roll of muted waves
Magnified by ignorance
What is over there is also over here
