Climate Model: Reef Organ

Title

Climate Model: Reef Organ

Description

As an artist, I generally don’t approach making art from the perspective as an activist, but rather as a passive observer of the environment in the time I live. These pieces reflect this, as both were made directly from from empirical observations from the natural environment. These were then run through my creative process to make the work.

Climate Model: Reef Organ (2012, oil on panel) was created while an artist in residence in Taiwan, where I spent a year studying the Kenting Coral Reef and its resilience to climate change and subsequent bleaching. The reef is unique in that it has flourished and recovered from previous bleaching, largely for reason s unknown.
