The modern civilization conquers mother earth in 1 Breath Time (WIN)

Emilio's 53 second without air,
intensively painting in a single breath.

In the performance the artist painted in a single breath how the modern civilization had conquered mother earth. The 3 meter X 2 meter Format is actually a video of a single frame. While painting Emilio lost his sight and kept painting (when he used the black paint) until he fainted.
The photo was taken in the Artist ecological farm that also functions as a non-profit community center contributed by him to the local community in order to learn and practice sustainable development.
Everything in the farm is grown organically, and a variety of workshops are held there.
