The Social Role of Ecological Artistic Expression
In answer to the question, “For what purpose is art created?”, makers respond with various reasons. Of the myriad of potential purposes, the aspect which I focus on is social change effected by works of art. By inciting interest in contemporary social or environmental problems manifest within our society, I seek to produce work that enlightens and generates positive change in the viewer. Such socially-conscious works have the possibility to engender these changed feelings without being based on scientific or political methods. In summary, the work I make imbues change that has a fundamental and curative effect, instead of being change that is extemporaneous or superficial.
