Slow Onset Events

Here is a brief statement about my upcoming exhibition:

Slow Onset Events

Slow Onset Events is an umbrella term for slow-acting climate change effects such as "sea level rise, increasing temperatures, ocean acidification, glacial retread and related impacts, salinization, land and forest degradation, loss of biodiversity and desertification."1 Through poetic sleight of hand, the work in this exhibition exemplifies the fear surrounding climate change while also offering a psychological-cum-superstitious solution for said fear.
