Pratibimb | Natures reclamation of earth

It is to create a visually captivating and thought-provoking design that sheds light on the current state of the natural world. The design starts by showcasing the beauty and miracles of the natural world but then transitions to highlight the negative impacts that humans have had on nature, including over-exhaustion and idolization. As the trail progresses, it leads to a temporal landscape, which is depicted as a “doom pit” where nature is alone and isolated from all the cruelty happening to her. This space serves as a wake-up call, highlighting the need for us to take responsibility for our actions and work towards restoring nature. The design then transitions to a memorial structure that has a reflective surface, which allows one to look at the piece and realize how we are responsible for the destruction of nature. The reflective surface serves as a mirror, reflecting back on ourselves and our impact on the natural world. Nature, in response, has started to protect itself by creating a wall with invasive species and not allowing people inside. This wall symbolizes the natural world protecting itself and nurturing the rebirth of new life. The design serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness between humans and the natural world and highlights the urgency of the need to protect and preserve nature.
