Where previous piece one wall of me dealt with humanity’s relationship to nature in an abstract way, Solastalgia (a neologism referring to existential distress caused by environmental change) is a direct response to the climate emergency we face today. But instead of provoking anxiety, the piece aims to foster emotional resilience and a sense of togetherness, promoting hope rather than fear.
"one wall of me" creates an opportunity for reflection on how the way we see affects a sense of separation. It is about interconnectivity of everything and about what happens when we choose to perceive it. It is about a human crisis of perception and about togetherness. "Without self-understanding we cannot hope for enduring solution to environmental problems, which are fundamentally human problems." Yi-Fu Tuan
