Our project tries to visualize the relationship between women and the earth in poetry and an interactive poster. The poems present the common features that women and the earth share in a universe where they are captives. They express vulnerability, frustration, and pain about the poor treatment they experience. Our poster’s pictures should visualize femininity interconnected and merged with the environment. It challenges the concept of Mother Earth and the predefined feminine role of the earth. Further, our project questions the vision of beauty, femininity, and gender associated with environmentalism. We want to give incentives to redefine those representations.
