Exhibition Statement

This piece forces those who feel immune to the consequences of wasteful behavior to imagine a place and time where they see the direct effects of their ignorance and negligence. The dichotomy presented needs no words of explanation: The emotional response is enough to force one to stop and think.

As designers, we have the power impart what we envision upon others in order to shape a more positive future. It is my hope that this piece will spark discussion about environmental sustainability, incite personal reflection, and challenge present-day wasteful attitudes.
