The breath of Darth Vader is an ongoing project, based on the burned forest at North Evia, where I live. The forest was burned in August of 2021 for ten continuous days. 500 thousands acres of pine and fir forests, hundreds of houses and thousands of animal were burned. It seemed like the breath of evil on earth. For the locals, the forest was their life, since they were living through that. Will this lead to desertification? Is this part of climate change or is it part of human activity? Is this an end or a new beginning?

    Tasos, I understand your sorrow and pain, an area just a few miles from us was on fire this summer, coming just a few miles from my neighborhood. The fire burned for nearly a month, destroying over 48,000 acres, historical buildings and untold numbers of wildlife died. It is deeply felt by everyone everywhere when such intense heat and dryness brought on by climate change is so destructive. I am so very sorry that your community suffered so much loss and grief, my heart goes out to you.
