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.
I struggle with the amount of influence and power chaos and technology have over our planet, and how much it filters through all aspects of life. We have one planet to live on and the factor of time which holds constant. Tech power and consumption virtual life, connectivity, isolation, sustainability, and humanity all share a common action thread of choice and are areas I research and try to respond to.
In pursuing a transformation of this struggle I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my personal iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work.
