19 August 2014

Pinboard. Earth Overshoot Day.

Today, August 19, is Earth Overshoot Day for 2014. It's the day each year that marks the point when humanity demands more from the earth than it can renew each year. My current Wunderwall, showing now at Peri in Turku, took this idea as inspiration. If you break the Wunderwall into twelve equal segments you'll find footprint images that subtly mark today. Something to think about as we continue to grow our population and demand more and more from our planet with little consideration for the other species we share it with.
