The artist that stood out to me was Chris Jordan and his work on in the Midway. His photography was so compelling and just reminded me of the negative impact we have on the environment and its inhabitants. It reminds me of a recent article where scientists found 11 pounds of coins in a sea turtle’s stomach – ultimately causing its death. Simple unwanted materials in our life that we are so easy to discard end up being mistaken as food by animals. Our waste continues to be a huge problem in our environment and in both his photos and film, Chris Jordan really proves a point. Though we may be blind to the fact – whether it may be purposeful or ignorance – the choices we make affect our world and it is up to us to raise awareness and stop the hurtful acts.
