Bringing awareness to the plight of Emperor penguins. The emperor penguin is the tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species and is endemic to Antarctica.
Because of climate change, ice is melting and changing environments so the majority of emperor penguin colonies will have lost half their populations by the end of the century.
NOTE: Throughout the work, you will find one's and zeroes and groups of many different symbols. The binary code(ones and zeroes) is the base language for all computers which make all technology possible. I incorporate the binary code to remind us how computers are penetrating every nook of life and enabling mass urbanism. I actually spell words that have been translated from our alphabet to binary code. The clutter of symbols parallel mnemonics with amnesia. An idea inspired by a universal feeling of chaos and information overload oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
