Tales of Yore

2011. Greece. Four triptychs, four episodes. A cycle that, through some views of a rugged landscape of the Attica’s East Coast, explores the relationship between Man/Civilization and Nature: monoliths, unfinished constructions, modern temples devoted to the god of concrete and left abandoned; the discovery of technology and the use of Fire; the relationship with an environment to dominate and at the same time to protect from.
But Nature screams, in absence of any regret, of any consciousness; when the dry end of a failing model approaches, can Man still avoid accepting the reasons for his fate?

The mind blanks at the glare. Not in remorse
—The good not done, the love not given, time
Torn off unused—nor wretchedly because
An only life can take so long to climb
Clear of its wrong beginnings, and may never;
But at the total emptiness for ever,
The sure extinction that we travel to
And shall be lost in always. Not to be here,
Not to be anywhere,
And soon; nothing more terrible, nothing more true.

Philip Larkin, “Aubade” from Collected Poems.
