A series of four simple but ominous animations dealing with the constantly debated threat of global warming. The series, although threatening in what they represent, are drawn in a seductive manner that suggests no threat at all.
Each work is shown on a loop highlighting their relentless and unstoppable force and power. The work takes as its starting point the disaster films of the 1970’s e.g. The Towering Inferno and the work of blockbuster director Roland Emmerich, questioning whether a hyper real description of disaster actually affects and mobilises the viewer or whether a more cartoon-like playful representation can be equally alarming.
Despite their promise of foreboding in these films, someone always gets out alive. But in my series there is far less hope for mankind, which is in my opinion ultimately a more realistic prospect.
