unEARTH is an artist-run initiative advocating responsible tourism and environmental-awareness for the city of Baguio.
The unEARTH art exhibit is the 4th major leg of the initiative that uses visual arts, music, and community to address concerns towards the environment.
unEARTH tells a story of travel - a story of walking, and of taking time to connect with the real gifts of nature and exploration. Set in the busy streets and sacred trails of Baguio City, the video attempts to inspire tourists to be responsible travellers.
In May 2014, Baguio city had been reported the most polluted city in the Philippines.
This short video montage features scenes from a 3-hour hike and clean up to the highest point in Baguio city - Mt. Cabuyao. A handful of artists, musicians, and individuals got together to rediscover the joys of walking places while attempting to set an example in leaving only footsteps in the places we visit.
unEARTH demands travellers to open their eyes to the real beauty of Baguio beyond the cool climate.. beyond the urbanscapes... outside of the shopping malls... and into the trails.. through the market alleys... where we will all find a spot we can call ours - a spot we would love enough to keep from harm at all costs.
This video is part of a visual arts group exhibit running from April 26 to May 25, 2015 from the lobby to the 3f main gallery of Altro Mondo Contemporaneo Arte, The Picasso Residences, P. Leviste St., Makati City.
