Project ECG

Allison Hung Yun

Electrocardiography means the process of measuring the electrical activity of the heart by using electrodes placed on the skin. So, can the ECG of the earth be measured? Can a photographer manage this like electrodes? 

Every answer would certainly be pessimistic. However, Allison Hung Yuns's project express a naive viewpoint about the earth. She keeps a line going on between the different geographies that she photographed and likens this linearity to the electrocardiogram of the Earth. It is a continuous project consisting of both nature and landscapes; from mountains, deserts, grasslands to buildings, factories. Yun also wishes this continuity. 

"It is a beautiful planet but we human are destroying it", says Yun and shows us to the earth with good and bad sides before inviting us to focus on the good side.
