2°C – 2017
‘2° C’ is an artists’ response to climate change, curated by Olivier Cornet with the support of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Ireland
My response to this theme was based on the visible signs of climate change where weather patterns are growing increasingly intense, resulting in storms, flooding and drought.
I really enjoyed making work for this exhibition in three different media and I was very happy with the visual aspect of the work. However, I did find it in some ways hypocritical to make work for an exhibition on global warming using three of the most energy hungry media you can choose.
It was after this exhibition I started looking at less energy hungry means of expression and gradually started moving over to fibre based arts.
