" Climate art is an important way to make visible what’s happening. And for some people, seeing a provocative image is going to motivate or provoke them far more than would reading a chapter.” 

-Diane Burko

Artist Statement:

​Humans have changed Earth’s climate. Increasing amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are warming oceans, melting ice caps, and rising sea levels. As our climate changes, art becomes an important tool in the communication and documentation of our changing world. Growing up next to a shrinking glacier in Alaska, I have seen my home change as a result of climate change. But it’s not often that people in the United States can relate on a personal and daily level to these powerful climatic shifts. Through my work I explore the changing environment, from the micro to the macro.
