Madeleine Bianchi - The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
We hiked on our SNOWSHOES through a narrow VALLEY in the SWISS ALPS!
And suddenly we stood in front of this breathtaking ICEFALL!
Embedded between lofty ROCK WALLS lies this VALLEY from NOVEMBER till FEBRUARY permanently in deep SHADOW!
Millions of meltwater drops freeze during their fall over the icy rock walls!
Thereby all drops together shape an artwork that continually changes and grows!
When the sun thaws the walls, this ice sculpture will become again drinking water!
Photographer MADELEINE BIANCHI and Video Producer ERIC MAURER:
This wonderful ICE SCULPTURE will flow down from its MOUNTAINS as PURE DRINKING WATER to INHABITED AREAS!
Where the so called CIVILIZED PEOPLE reside, that have unlearned, to VALUE this MOST PRECIOUS GIFT of MOTHER NATURE!
Any RUTHLESS EGOIST PROFITS SYSTEMATICALLY and SHAMELESSLY from this UNTENABLE STATE!
By UNTREATED SEWAGE of IDUSTRY, FACTORIES etc., as well as by PUBLIC SEWAGE SYSTEMS!
By the enormous OVERFERTILIZATION and the additional SPREADING of SLURRY on the SOILS by the profit-oriented AGRICULTURE!
But that's not all: there are also MILLIONS of SUPERFLUOUS DUMBASSES, that OVERPOPULATE the GLOBE!
ISN'T IT FUNNY, TO SEE, how THEY ARE SHITTING daily straight INTO every PASSING-FLOWING WATER?
