Focusing on the idea of land as soil (food production, habitat, re-generation spaces, contaminated soil), as place (land rights, land access) and as verb (to land), this work explores the concepts of the three Earths, put forward by Bruno Latour; the complexities of sustainability in the island of Certosa, in the Venice Lagoon.

The work Landing touches upon the idea of the ‘old land’ as a mythical place which we cannot go back to, the ‘future earth’ as something fragile which may or may not survive for humanity to ‘have a safe landing’, and the current situation in which a critical reassignment of values must take place for humans not to destroy what sustains them. It does so by shifting the focus from being anthropocentric to the animal viewpoint.
