This Summer I will be mounting an expedition with Project Pressure, a Climate Change activist charity, at Mount Baker to document its retreating glaciers and create artwork which aims to further understanding of Climate Change through humanistic narrative. Our project is a unique collaboration between art and science - the result will be a combination of provocative artwork and photographic timelines to be used by scientists and researchers.
Located in the northwestern tip of America, Mount Baker, is a unique place where the effects of Climate Change can be seen through the accumulation of over a century’s worth of photographic documentation. Together we will continue and preserve this historic timeline of glacial ice - not just for posterity but to further our scientific and social understanding of climate change: past, present, and future.
In addition to continuing the timeline documents I will be using a RGB Tricolor separation process that will index time into still images, building a complimentary narrative to Mount Baker’s rich history. The final images will be a synthesis of visual and metaphorical juxtapositions of the seemingly unchanging mountains versus the nature of its fleeing existence.
This both my and Project Pressure’s first Kickstarter initiative, so we really need your support make it happen! You can help us by backing the project on Kickstarter or simply sharing our campaign with your friends. We’re working with a very tight budget so anything you can give will certainly go a long way and you’ll receive some great rewards in return.
Thank you very much.
