Anthropogenic Destruction- Kinetic Sculptures





Power | This tiger represents the power and beauty that our nature holds.  Nature can destroy us with it's natural disasters yet it also brings us peace and enjoyment.   Global climate change continues to accelerate as we discard natures importance, and our need for our co-existence.

Double Trouble|  This sculpture is an artistic version of a livestock production farm.  It constantly chops through the plaster layers and will eventually destroy itself.  If humans continue to produce the same amount of meat we will destroy ourselves as well.

Revelation | This figure represents the human race breaking free from their old lifestyle.  We need to become more sustainable in every aspect of our lives.  The road ahead will be extremely difficult, but neccesary for our continued existence.

Tree?| Will deforestation wipe every tree off the face of the earth?  If so we will probably miss the aesthetics.  I have created the first tree of the future by mixing industrial material with nature.
