Introducing 4, a long-term collective project now available as a book and an exhibition. After an exciting year of collating and editing, our work is ready for printing. This self-published book is divided into 4 volumes, each containing a selection of images taken by TerraProject, and an accompanying story written by Wu Ming 2, member of the renowned collective of Italian writers, Wu Ming. The 4 volumes present an interpretation of the Italian landscape utilizing the symbology offered by the 4 classical elements. The chapter Water documents the alarming anthropization of the 7000 kilometers of coast of the country. Land revisits the long term scars left by 5 of the main earthquakes of the last 40 years. The chapter Air chronicles the most polluted industrial towns of Italy. And the final chapter Fire focuses on the four active volcanos present in the country, a unique environment of fragile coexistence between humans and nature.
The exhibition opens in Florence on the 9th of November, in the Murate exhibition center.
