Keya Sanghavi, a resident of mumbai created a wood piece of matchbox and matchsticks to show destructive nature of human kind. Keya currently a 12th grade IBDP student from Woodstock International School, Mussoorie.
She is a fine art student intending to apply to US and UK universities for her undergraduate studies in the same area. Keya said that it is my expression of destructive nature of human kind aided technology I have modelled through a wood piece of matchbox and matchsticks.
This piece signifies our constant struggle with technology and how that effects our definition to loss of humanity.
The five feet tall matchbox and the base of the matchsticks are made out of pine wood to emphasize another man-made process which is cutting down large scale ecosystems in the world. The phones along the side of the match box were placed to represent technology which is working as a catalyst, burning the human race into extinction, thus the fallen burnt matchsticks.
The matchsticks are shown to have a human head to symbolize the fall of the human race due to technology. The green carpet again is used to represent grass ironically, as it is in fact an artificial background, proving that it wouldn’t be hard for technology to take our living objects.
Keya added,”I wish to see people taking lessons out of my model expression and bring positive changes to their lifestyle.”
