Suffering for dragons
This project is part of my Introduction to Creative Practice unit, focusing on Sustainability. I had the idea from the research I did showing that the richest 10% of the world's population hoard wealth and resources which could make sustainability accessible for everyone like dragons hoard gold while producing over half of the world's carbon emissions.
I found that even if everyone else reduced their emissions to zero, the richest 10% of the population would still blow our remaining carbon budget by 2033. Our world will burn because of their actions, and the poorest 50% of the population will be suffering most trying to fix the damage they caused with the equivalent of buckets of water against dragon fire.
While the final piece is here, my creative process for this project and for others in this unit can be found on the Instagram page I created just for this unit's artwork.
