Portfolio > Climate Change is Real

I am not a scientist. I paint about my emotional response to things going on in the world, rather than a data driven analysis of that information. But, I am an environmentalist, and I with this map in particular, I wanted to convey some of the real effects climate change is having and will have on the globe.

I decided to integrate real facts about the effects of climate change with poetic thoughts and reactions to the changing landscapes and ecosystems of the world. I wrote emotional things like "flooding of emotions and lands" and "everything adrift" alongside facts such as "collapsing ice shelves" and "unprecedented global cross-border migration."

In this map, I integrate real facts about the effects of climate change with poetic thoughts and reactions to the changing landscapes and ecosystems of the world.
