Trois Terres en cinétique
"Mathilde de l’Ecotais has adjusted the focus of her camera. From the infinitely big to the infinitely small. A photo journey that impacts in a good or bad way our five senses. And urges us to look at and feel this nurturing Earth differently. From up there first, from this space yet so mysterious from which we extract our dreams sponsored by Nasa, the planet is no longer blue like an orange. But rather red stained like this sausage that outlines the Americas. As if the ecological invoice were already expensive. Plastic pieces in relief inviting themselves to the ocean are taunting the eye, causing this irresistible desire to strip these elements off and clean the deck. Regain some balance. Avoid this chaos to which this ''Belly to the Ground'' is leading us."
