Final Year Project - Visual Communications
Conceptually explore the word ‘state’ and create an exhibition of work that communicates your findings. Research broadly and personally engage with the subject. Pursue lines of enquiry into social, political, cultural and contemporary issues around the word ‘state’. Creatively explore these issues, recognising that this project is not simply about ‘state’ but your interpretation of that term.
The world is changing. Weather patterns, global warming, global cooling, environmental disruption, threats to the natural world and a looming sixth mass extinction on the planet are all combining to set the planet up for an uncertain future. The ice caps are melting and the over fished, over polluted, over salinated seas are rising to new levels, faster than before.
Life on the planet is perched at the edge of an unavoidable precipice, unless we as a planet act collectively to reverse the damage we have caused over the last industrious century. We treat the world as if it were not our own, something replaceable, something fixable and yet our collective actions would suggest otherwise.
What if nature had it’s say? What if the Earth fought back? Is it happening already? Scientific consensus is almost unanimous, we are, and have been, affecting the planet to a greater degree than previously thought. Our futures are uncertain and we are to blame.
Aims and Objectives
For this project I have created an animation to highlight the precarious position the global climate currently finds itself in. I aim to inspire the viewer to consider the planet and the state of the natural world at present as the effects of man are beginning to be felt worldwide.
