@photoworks_uk by @pinaryoldaas #global #warming #hot #yoga #practice Global Warming Yoga Studio offers a collective sweating experience in the face of the impending consequences of climate change. The yoga platform becomes a stage for a performer/yogini, who leads a class following a scripted ypga sequence. The yogini takes them into a relaxing journey into the molecular dimensions of the anthropocene, as practitioners sweat throughdifferent asanas, : ” inhale, and bring your attenion to all the particulate matter landing on your alveoles … exhale and let go of your cognitive dissonance…” The practice takes place in front of 200+ heat lamps that convey the letters G-L-O-B-A-L-W-A-R-M-I-N-G #🔥 #red #Bikram #art
