Artist statement

Climate change is an important subject matter that everyone should be aware of. However, I often feel it’s made uncomfortable to approach and trying to contextualize a change in environment that transcends our lifetimes can often be hard to empathize with. While effects of our collective actions will inevitably have dire consequences if steps aren’t taken, that doesn’t mean education about what we’re doing to the planet has to be so gloomy. To that end, I wanted to create a series of works that could spark a conversation across all ages.

Furthermore, I also wanted to explore issues around desertification and crypto currency in relation to energy consumption, issues that I feel the greater public might not be consciously aware about
