In these works Ecocritics and Greenwashing are sculpturally reinterpreted. The aim is to respond to the powerful and pervasive environmental images via the angle of selected Eco-institutions. The image selected was the one of two hands holding the globe; a powerful, recognizable, and well-­‐known cliché and symbol about caring for the planet’s natural system. These series of sculpture are created following a research on Ecofeminism. Indistinguibile scarified hands hold a fragmented planet that emerges from a wild context. The planet splits in to two fragments: the Built and the UN-built environment. The ungendered hands get absorbed by the wildness of the Un-built, which enfolds it and reclaims it. The architectural object reinterprets and reshapes the commercial image and questions the paradoxes and clichés of the planet we live in.
