Visualising our beautiful Earth emotions invites us to care and act for a better world – reflecting on Navine G. Dossos’ murals at IMMA

Launched over a month ago, in this post I reflect on the social power of visualising our ecological emotions through artist Navine G. Knossos’ Kind Words Can Never Die wall murals, now on display for all visitors to the courtyard of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) for several years. This vibrant, vitalising colourfield behind the colonnade of IMMA’s courtyard also encircled and energised many of the events for IMMA’s inaugural Earth Rising – 3 day ecoart festival 21-23 October 2022, both visually and symbolically. I was delighted and honoured to mentor Navine in ecoliteracy before this ambitious commission.
