'Humid(C)ity' debates on how people relate to the urban space opposed to nature, specially in Manaus and in its surroundings: towns, communities, villages cut by igarapés (streams) and rivers, also surrounded by green, however very often in disharmony with them.
Though the alledged metropolitan area of Manaus is surrounded by the jungle and mighty rivers Manaus is nevertheless the second least greened state capital in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, and it is also one of the worst in the ranking of access to basic sanitation. At the same time as human beings and the urban growth exert pressure on nature, the daily living in the region shows that nature exerts not only influence but also a counter pressure. This project seeks to question which marks have been left on both sides, as well as in the author.
