Reflecting On Our Waste
A mural pictures a young person wearing a paper bag crown perched in a slumped posture atop a crate amidst boxes and trash. The person is wearing an oxygen mask connected to a bell jar containing a green plant while mournfully contemplating factories and their emissions. This work was created as part of the Baladk Street Art Festival in Amman Jordan. As the artist explains in the Instagram post from which this image was sourced, "The theme of this year is all about the environment and waste management, so the concept of this mural is about reflecting on our position as humans in all of this, being on top of all the advancements we created yet ignoring how fragile and in denial we are when it comes to our responsibility and importance of the environment."
