One Step For Our Planet

  1. 1. Proposal One Step For Our Planet www.vmauritz.ch Author ©Viliam Mauritz
  2. 2. The concept One or Step F Our Planet A work of art designed to raise our awareness of the need to preserve our environment. It consists of three gigantic shoe footprints to be set up, outdoors, in the centre of Paris where it will be in contact with both Parisians and tourists. Visitors, when they first come into contact with the three huge footprints, which will be built out of bales of hay and measure 100 metres by 30 and be 2 metres in height, will have the impression that they are looking at a maze or a children‛s construction set. However, after thinking about it for a while, these visitors will realise that they are actually looking at a giant footprint. Such then is the artist‛s message : our planet can be saved only if there is a collective awareness of the need to do so and that, in turn, is possible only through acceptance of each person‛s individual responsi- bility in the matter. Each and every one of us has to make these steps part of our individual daily routines so that together we can save our planet. 2 Author ©Viliam Mauritz

At this time, the City of Paris has given us its agreement in principle concerning the feasibility of this project. Together with our partners and our own team we intend to : Design and set up a marquee with : Works of art of the creator of this project having a similar theme Events and activities : Performances by mime artists inside the « step » Development of an website Development of an educational programme for schools Recycling : After the exhibition, the bales of straw will be donated to stables, zoos and outlying farms around Paris. 5 Author ©Viliam Mauritz

These three huge footprints measuring around 100 metres by 30 laid The steps symbolise our daily « footprints » and the testimony out in a large open area such as the Champ de Mars will make up a we leave behind us. They represent our firm commitment to man-high maze of bales of hay. the environment, as we fall in behind this cause and move on without leaving any unduly indelible signs behind us on Going up onto the nearby Eiffel Tower will enable visitors to visualise planet Earth. the three footsteps. Even if this project, just like global warming, may appear to be The kick-off point chosen for this project is Paris – a model for this type elusive, it is a significant achievement that, in a certain sense, of action. reflects the enormous challenge that face us in regard to the environment. But why not subsequently encourage other cities to follow Paris’ lead so as to start the project off on its journey and create a world-wide This work of art creates an ambiance which places its viewer mobilisation ? directly in the situation of feeling a lack of visibility or involve- ment similar to those which we feel when confronted with global warming. Inside the artwork, we are players but we see nothing for we lack perspective. From a distance, we become spectators and comprehend the totality of the artwork but we find it difficult to be involved. Villiam Mauritz 7 Author ©Viliam Mauritz
