"Land Survey: A Manifesto" Exhibition at KunstHaus Gallery

According to figures from the United Nations, “the world’s population is expected to increase by two billion persons in the next 30 years…and could peak at nearly 11 billion around 2100.” As the human footprint expands across the planet, what will happen to the world that supports us? How will cities develop to cope with a growing population? Can we stay connected to the environment around us without destroying it?

In this exhibition, I examined the role of political powers, communities and individuals in balancing the needs of people and nature. To add another layer on my points, I had the collaboration of researcher and project manager Skyler Perkins. joining me on a panel discussion, he discussed ideas of environmental economics, the importance of for our present and future world, and how it intersects with art. At the end of the panel discussion, Washington DC based Monica Alvano brought the audience together for a meditation consumption and the importance of sustainable habits as consumers.
