Future Landscapes

Future Landscapes from Kim Costantino on Vimeo.

Interesting project of the Social Design Master student (Design Academy Eindhoven), Kim Costantino. He is researching, documenting and talking with the people involved in the Turin-Lyon Hihg Speed Railway line discussion.

"Future Landscapes is a research and an exhibition about the conflict around the construction of the New High Speed Railway Turin-Lyon and the No TAV social movement. To understand the tangibility of the conflict and of the landscape I want to go beyond the interpretation that the media give of the story. In April I'll walk from Turin to Lyon, across the Alps, 300 km in 20 days. The slowness of the walk will allow me to observe the landscape and get into direct contact with the conflict, to document the signs that it left on the territory. The final product of this experience will be a map of the struggle between promoters (pro TAV) and opponents (No TAV) of the railway. The result will be shown in a exhibition called Future Landscapes in June 2014. The exhibition is an attempt to make the problem graspable and to understand the many aspects of a conflict that goes beyond the construction of a new railway. The walk will be documented in real time through the Facebook page of the project."
