Biotope (from Ancient Greek βίος (bios) 'life' + τόπος (topos) 'place') is an area providing a living place for a specific biological community.
The Biotope series was made as a visualization of a large installation representing a “city” built of trash containers. The project deals with one of the serious problems of today world – the problem with the waste that has already not only pragmatic but cultural and social dimensions as well. The increasing consumption leads to increased pollution. The consumer society has turned into a waste society. The message is quite clear: we produce so much waste that the place we live in, our biotope, turns gradually into a dumping ground where our outlook and movements get more and more limited.
