Earth_Awake is an installation expressing the current epidemic of natural disasters occurring around the world, especially in Latin America: Haiti, Chile, and Baja California with Earthquakes and Global Warming. “La Lengua Muerte” is an art exhibit focusing on being Latin in America, this installation was done for this particular show.
Earth_Awake is my plea to the world to be aware, attentive, and to awaken to the situations millions of people are facing, and that inevitably the entire world will face, which is climatic change and Global Warming. To express this concept I used cardboard to symbolize the movement of the earth integrated in to the wall as one enters the space in the Labotanica Gallery to give a 3-dimensional effect.
Words are sporadically spread through the piece to implement the countries affected. In my work I use each theme to find reason behind a social and global issue. Hearing about the show dealing with Latin American culture, I immediately began contemplating how to incorporate the catastrophic events of the earthquakes around the world, especially in Latin America into this show.
