Silent Spring

Isabelle Hayeur

2015, 18:45 minutes, colour, no dialogue


This video was inspired by American biologist Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring (1962), which is famous for having contributed to the ban against the pesticide DDT, as well as to the emergence of the environmental movement. Using visual metaphors, this work alludes to the problems caused by industrialization, by evoking its impact on health, ecosystems and climate.
