Sustainable Earth - Rebekah Jones

The only way to prove with 100% certainty that humans are responsible for global warming would be to run an experiment with two identical Earths – one with human influence and one without. That obviously isn’t possible, and so most scientists are careful not to state human influence as an absolute certainty. Nonetheless, the evidence is now extremely strong.” The Guardian, December 2010.

Despite all of the evidence we have for climate change and the toll that it is taking upon the world, people fail to listen. Developed countries still pollute at an alarming rate. The population of Britain produces around 300 million gallons of sewage everyday, some of which is left untreated and pumped into the sea. The United States is the largest single emitter of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels and last year alone it was accountable for 25% of all carbon dioxide emissions. My proposal is to open people's eyes through creative, non-environmentally damaging, mediums.

By breaking out of the traditional confines of what is considered art and engaging in real world issues - eco-artists are allowing their art to have a function. Within this proposal, I am attempting to reach out across disciplines and help to bridge the gap between art and life by raising awareness and appreciation for our natural resources.

This exhibition is an attempt to address climate change through creative, non-environmentally damaging mediums. The artists that will be included in the exhibition, produce their work via "green" methods and the use of sustainable materials, and use it to communicate important issues in order to challenge the viewer to re-evaluate and re-imagine the world we live in.
