"The Unbearable Lightness of Being" is the title of ongoing project. It is a series of reflections on the nature of light and on the global climate situation and the notion of boundary, generated by personal scientific readings, dialogues and collaborations with atmospheric physicists.

What is a border? / What happens when we we cross it? / What happens when we destroy it? / What if we try to control it?

This environmental installation, takes the element of light and use it to for highlight in in a poetic and perceptive way, the violation of natural, ethical and symbolic boundaries between nature and man; symptom of global warming caused by human “lightness”.
