BREATH Project Anim
Mount Olivella is a 1,025 mt. high mountain rising above the Gulf of Sapri, in Southern Italy. It was partly deforested by the middle of 1700s, with serious consequences as the hydrogeological instability which still causes floods in the surrounding areas. BREATH will revive Mount Olivella, bringing balance and protecting the environment. Each new tree will be a new breath for the mountain. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/breath-tempo-di-ricarica-art-environment#/ BREATH will start with a huge organic drawing made of 5,000 new trees planted on Mount Olivella. Created by the Spanish artist Escif, BREATH is a battery which depicts the energy cycle. It follows the rhythms of time and Earth, always renewing and regenerating itself and never staying the same. BREATH is absorbed by seasonal cycles and expresses them through the changing colors and the presence or absence of leaves.
