Notions of acceleration pertaining to climate change.

In 2019, during a winter residency in Finland, I was compelled to respond to a growing concern pertaining to climate change.

 

Science prescribes that a small variation in temperature will have a dramatic cumulative effect over time. I began to express the idea of acceleration through a process of mark making that resulted in works on paper, land art installations and finally a video work depicting thousands of metal ball bearings cascading over a physical. Filmed at one thousand frames per second, the small consequence of an action leading onto another is exemplified.

Notions of acceleration pertaining to climate change, work hopes to express the impact climate change will have on our society, culture and environment. Perhaps some creative madness will inspire social change by joining the chorus of voices calling for action.
