The disappearance of life on Earth is a current catastrophe, and this devastating process tends to accelerate extremely rapidly. Air pollution, global warming, ice melting, drought, and deforestation are interrelated events that threaten the continued existence of many animal and plant species. It is not easy to take action on such a vast problem, and individuals can do little. The ecological revolution should be based on biophilia, that is, on the love of life as such, in its refined complexity, dependencies, and intertwining. Love is a human need, deeply revolutionary because it is directed not at the self but at others; we love Nature for what it is, not for what it gives us. Materialistic madness should be replaced by a cooperative and noncompetitive logic with other living things, by an ethic of complicity and not competition. This is the premise from which the installation suggested by the four ceramists who propose, in the garden of MUST in Faenza, each a different interpretation of the theme.
