The Betrayal Cycle

Joāo Saramago

The Betrayal Cycle is a brand new series of interventions on the landscape documented to reveal mankind’s acts of betrayal.

Inspired by the recovery stages for trauma and grief, The Betrayal Cycle is split into a structured narrative to showcase environmental issues as an allusive reference to personal and intimate relationships, whilst questioning acts of human’s corruptive behaviour and their long term impact on the landscape.
