Environmental Matrix of Power is an investigation that is materialized in a graphical representation, banner and a poem that portray some of the historical narratives and systems behind our Climate-Social Emergency. This circular timeline, which is also a matrix and a net, aims to review critically some of the hegemonic discourses built around nature and to reveal how the systems of the present are a direct effect of the previous historical constructions. By highlighting one of the questions of the graphic: ‘What communities and landscapes sustain our current lifestyle?’ The 8-meter banner challenges passersby and drivers passing in front of the building. Through a rhythmic translation, the poem ‘From Oceans and Rivers to Blood-vessels and Streams’ recites the content of the graph.

Environmental Matrix of Power intends to reveal the incongruence of our current systems while making evident that there cannot be climate justice without social justice, that the struggle against climate change should go hand in hand with the struggle to decolonize our systems and that the climate emergency should be tackled through borderless, intersectional planetary solidarity.
