LOTE - COVID 19
For me, art is a way of dealing with what I don't know how to deal with. During this covid-19 crisis, the idea for this photo essay came up, as a critique of how Covid-19 has been treated in Brazil, and also a way of try to show through art the seriousness of the problem to people.
The death of humanity frightens me, not only because of the death of life, because death is a consequence of life and with that we know how to deal, I speak of the death of humanity, what makes us feel and act in community, the humanity that turns into humans.
When life is treated as a commodity, names become numbers, motives are lost, life becomes data, it becomes statistics.
Life without humanity loses its meaning.
It scares me, people without humanity, become self-centered, who seek their pleasures above the common good, who ignore facts and science for the illusion of reason, they don't care about others, who don't care about life, who don't matter with anything else that doesn't satisfy them, a sociopathic humanity where life turns into data, and data comes to life
