'The real problem of humanity is we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology. And it is terrifically dangerous, and it is now approaching a point of crisis overall.' E.O. Wilson
We can only live for 3 minutes without air...
Without a drastic global change in the next 10 years, the achievements we have enjoyed through our inventiveness, will become futile if we can no longer sustain the most basic of our human needs. Art can help to not simply change our perspectives, but also to provide a visual language that connects communities.
From ‘holograms you can touch’ in new and discarded plastics, to sculptures in nitrogen dioxide (NOX) absorbing ceramic geopolymers, I bring together my background as physicist, artist, public speaker and innovator to create work and partnerships that address the diminishing air quality on our burgeoning planet. It is the most pressing of issues on an increasingly Anthropocene world slowly being reshaped by the things we consume and then disregard.
Through my work, I seek to find an ethical framework for our progress by remembering the things that are best about being human; empathy and compassion for each other, our planet home and the fragile biological web of life, of which we are only a small part.
