Slightly Altered project
Working on Slightly Altered project artistic duo Synchrodogs went into a long trip across Carpathian Mountains to discover how far people managed to intrude into the territories that were meant to be wild. Slightly Altered is a reflection on how much we are intertwined with nature - changing the environment, we change ourselves. The project is about interdependency of humans and nature and the new ways the Earth begins to look as a result of our interventions into the environmental processes, a visual message upon how much we, like all life, both alter our environment and are altered by it.
