Project “Holland” – fotografie en video
Our project is about the future. We see that the future world will be similar to Holland today. It is a struggle for life and adaptation to new climatic conditions. We see that the new world will exist as islands and megacities.
One of the islands will be a megacity called Holland. Everything will be connected, everything will become one, everything will be mixed: industrial facilities, nuclear power plants, houses where people live, recreation areas, land for growing vegetables, greenhouses, children, men and women, animals – all will be mixed up, everything will be very close to everything. We must learn to live side by side, very close to each other. Holland gives a message to the whole world that it is possible.
Already now, Holland shows the whole world how to exist in the struggle and cooperation with the changing climate and new problems of civilization. There should not be a war of all against all, wars with each other, humanity should not spend its resources on new weapons – humanity must spend its resources on building the future now, today. In the future, problems will not disappear. There will be new problems. The new world, the world of the future, is the continuation of the Biblical story. The story of Cain and Abel remains. The history of the Flood is always close.
The project will be on the exhibition of Vladimir and Maya from October 19 to November 10, 2019 in Pulchri Studio (The Hague).
We are now making a new project “Holland”. In 2016 and 2017, we were taking photos and video in the port of Rotterdam and nearby, in the South and North Holland.
