Human leftovers – By Luca Ellena

The project ‘human leftovers’ is all about the question of what we leave behind us when we die and how our world and beautiful nature looks like at this very moment.

What are human leftovers?
 
In my opinion we leave a world full of chaos and disaster. A broken world which we do not care about. Old things which are not needed anymore are placed where no one can see them, or where no one feels responsible for them. We let them vegetate for decades just because it might cost a buck or two to dispose them off properly.
 
The victim of this is our planet. Many people would like to change something, but in the end it’s always to difficult or too much of an effort to do so. For me human leftovers are not our bones or our body, it’s what we leave on our planet once we are gone.
