An Alternative, Transparent

 

An Alternative, Transparent is an installation with polyethylene walls and aluminium fuselage, reminiscent of a closed cube. The installation, placed in the streets, is accessible to people who can enter the cube and write on its transparent walls, suggesting solutions to daily problems for all to see. An Alternative, Transparent has an important message for society and discusses many global issues, regardless of national and regional identities. It offers clarification on limits of choice, urging conscientious decisions on which the vision of our future depends.
