The 8th Bio-Art International Contest 2020
Theme: Human and Virus
The rapidly spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19) virus is terrifying people all over the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us a lot of material and social damage, but it has also given us the opportunity to reconsider what we have taken for granted. Fishes have returned in 60 years and dolphins have been spotted in Venice Canals thanks to city lockdown. The stifling air pollution has disappeared and the natural environment has gradually recovering, after the industry stopped.
The Earth has already warned us through various infectious diseases such as SARS and MERS, and COVID-19, maybe it is the last signal from the Earth to mankind. We realized so painfully from this experience that the counterattack of the virus begins with the destruction of balance with nature caused by human selfishness.
Any country cannot fight alone with the spread of COVID-19 all over the world. In the face of threats of overwhelming Pandemic around the world, we must stop raging against each other, such as racism, religious conflicts, and confrontations between nations. The international community needs to be more united, cooperative, and active in communicating with each other than ever before.
We feel the need to overcome sorrow and crisis, and we wish to host the 8th Bio-Art Contest on the theme of “Virus and Human”. We look forward to taking time to think about humanity and to heal and sympathize with each other through the works of many messages.
