21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Eva and Adam getting lost

This photograph is a portrait of the artist collective Delightlab during an exercise of laser light bouncing off mirrors in the underground parking lot of a building. After taking this picture I imagine that it´s a strong representation of our actual times. We humans want to be above all on this planet, at the center, forgetting that we are a whole, together with nature, in fact we are part of it. This position we have taken has caused great damage to our planet and ecosystems. The great technological advances have led us to overcome many barriers, but the big question today is how far we will go between technology and our own humanity.
