Silent hunting

The ringing of migration, the war of our time. Dark bird leaning over the horizon. Scorched earth, abandoned houses, a small man among propaganda networks. A silent war of dehumanization, silent hunting, the shadow of a step through the abyss, a black haze. Today, anthropocentrism in environmental management leads to the division of living world objects into useful and harmful categories, the total destruction of wildlife objects that do not have economic importance, or do not contribute to the development of the economy, even local. In most of its modern range, a person behaves in accordance with the status of an adventive species (it can significantly change the “ecosystem”, causes a significant reduction or even extinction of certain types of local culture, flora and fauna), as a biocenotic aggressor, does not adapt to the environment, but actively changing it to fit your own needs, without forming sustainable social or any other ties.

I am exploring the theme of war, emigration and ecology. I believe that these topics have a dynamic nature of interaction and a certain specificity of consequences. One event begets another. The chain of resource requirements, territories, dictates an aggressive policy, which in turn is sprayed with a poisonous mixture of total war. Violating the “ecology” of relations between species of Homo sapiens. The question arises not only in the problem of solving environmental disasters, but also in overcoming the war, as a spiritual catastrophe of mankind. The whole planet consists of bonds and threads, breaking off in one place, a push will occur in the opposite part. We are the totality of living organisms that have adapted to live together in a certain environment, forming a single whole with it. Man needs to become one of the components of the whole system of nature in order to find harmony with himself and overall integrity.
