‘Deforestation’ highlights the consequences of deforestation. Inspired by the works of Isaac Montoya, it uses the semantics of color. When shone with different color light, a different image will appear; this is a direct analogy to how people can treat the same land differently which will result in a different outcome as well. In a green light, ‘deforestation’ shows the ideal state of a forest. In a blue light, it shows what drives humans to cut down the trees, or even burn them, leaving the forest in a state as shown when it is under the red light.
