INVOLUTION PROGRESS CHARTS

The work goes back to the graph extracted from INPE - National Institute for Space Research, referring to deforestation in the Amazon during the period from 2015 to 2021. There are still no graphs referring to 2022, however, estimates indicate that deforestation will be 16% higher than the previously recorded devastation. 

The installation is an offshoot of my current research on the Anthropocene, the theory of chemist Paul Crutzen, which points to the formation of a new geological layer formed by the impact of man from the Industrial Revolution to the present day.

The title mentions the word "progress", which is directly related to the Industrial Revolution, a symbol of world development, while at the same time causing the destruction of nature, a basic element for our survival. 

The indiscriminate expansion of the industrialization process results in the involution of human beings and the destruction of the environment.

 "Involution Progress Charts" is one of the charts in the series that addresses current issues, such as "Overshoot Day", the day of the year when humanity's demand for natural resources exceeds the capacity of Earth to produce or renew these resources over the course of 365 days.
