Edward Burtynsky "Manufactured Landscapes"
This event has ended.
The environment, China, art. Is this how the earth is being laid to waste, or just the unfortunate footprint of human development and progress?
Internationally-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky's "Manufactured Landscapes" series has continued to train its lens on human "development" and the extreme changes wrought by industrial activity on our landscapes. The footage, although harsh, is at the same time overwhelmingly beautiful. Burtynsky visited China to film this startling documentary, with its eloquent portrayals of industrial landscapes that escape mainstream media attention. This much talked-about film, which garnered several prizes, questions the future of our ravaged environment. Featuring U2's Bono and artists who received the "Contribution to the Earth" award.
