Feeling the Pressure

5 May - 2 June 2012

The installation 'Nurturing' (see previous post 5 Dec 2011) has been selected for an open exhibition 'Feeling the Pressure' on the theme of Climate Change at Rhyl Library, Museum & Arts Centre in North-Wales. 
The installation consists of one electrical appliance, a makeshift light source, and three photographs showing the light in action outdoors. While technical and aesthetical imperfect,  “Nurturing” offers a naïve and uncomplicated solution to an environment with reduced light levels, where nature needs nurturing even beyond normal day light hours. This work relates to our haphazard stewardship of nature, and questions whether the efforts to address climate change will be enough to confront the global pressure on earth’s resources and systems.
