Let Us Cultivate Our Garden

2022 - ongoing

 

Let Us Cultivate Our Garden borrows the titular quote from Voltaire's satirical novel Candide, implying to tend to our own scope of business and bother with ourselves less with the inevitable sufferings of the world. It can be understood that, if you take care of your own, the world will take care of itself. Using the motif of garden, this project examines the quote in the present day by exploring the notion of “cultivating our own garden under the context of an increasingly interconnected world”.

This is an ongoing project conceived of in participation in the Pluritopia Cloud Residency.
