"Every Last Drop" (每一点滴)
"Every Last Drop" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Humans always get in the way of Mother Nature. There’s no denying it. They always claim to have a good reason for cutting down acres of rainforests, or for pumping animals full of hormones, but the simple reality is – they will do anything to get what they want. Scientists constantly warn of the impending doom climate change is bringing, yet no one seems to be fazed. Humans continue to interrupt the flow of nature at every possible moment, vying to give their unnecessary input, their ‘two cents’ that no one ever asked for. Clear skies in time for the Beijing Olympics? Increasing rainfall in times of drought? Why not make it happen? As such, cloud seeding has become a popular problem solver in recent years. This relatively new form of weather modification adds tiny particles such as that of silver iodide to clouds, in turn increasing the output of rainfall from clouds. Evaporation, condensation… interruption…precipitation. Scientists have come up with an ingenious way of influencing the water cycle. The question we must ask is, what is the occasion here?
