Projet: Carbon Footprint
Résumé, version intégrale du texte en anglais uniquement

Le projet associe les phénomènes locaux et le changement climatique global. Si les données et analyses scientifiques sont cruciales pour notre compréhension du changement climatique, le projet prendra également en considération d'autres éléments comme le détournement d'expressions métaphoriques (ex: "climat économique"), une analyse corrélative des statistiques de la station météo de Malin Head avec le PIB irlandais, et se fondera sur des matériaux, savoirs, iconographies locales.

Project: Carbon Footprint is a process-based artwork linking local phenomenon to global climate change. While the scientific data and analysis are imperative to our understanding of climate change, the project will also consider the hijacking of the term "climate" as in "the economic climate", the concept of "low-carbon" economies, a statistical correlation analysis of Malin Head meteorological data with Irelands gross domestic product (GDP) and green house gas emissions, and a substantial consideration and use of local materials, knowledge, iconography and personal industry on a human (rather than industrial) scale. The project will attempt to make the science and issues of climate change accessible by rephrasing them in materials and contexts, which are part of the everyday experience, as well as working to reclaim local iconography.


Biography: Seema Goel is a Canadian artist and a MFA Graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and is currently completing a MA.Sc. (Interdisc) at the Fine Arts / Environmental Engineering dept, University of Regina.
