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.
In this piece and the rest of her current body of work, centering acts of repetition and patterning manifest through meticulous and purposefully drawn, symbols mixed with binary code (ones and zeroes) clustered, recurring, and tightly organized. These represent noise and chaos. Part of that noise is human impact on the world, and the other is how present-day tech consumption filters life experience with the actual world and alters reality.
Putting the chaos and noise into some sense of organization is satisfying, and centering. Perhaps her nostalgia for how life was before technology and such noticeable human impact came into play, is part of the reason she is so sensitive to its current effects.
