Artwork:
The Drag
Two-channel video installation, 2015

There will definitely come a day when all our fossil fuel reserves run out: how far away is that event, is a point of discussion. But the premise behind this artwork is a drag race without gasoline. Through the absence of gasoline to propel a car forward we hope to envision a life without fossil fuel and question what measures we are taking to cope with that eventuality. The Drag is a two-screen projection depicting a lone competitor in an imagined post-fossil fuel drag race. Rather than the car moving from the start to the finish line propelled by gasoline, the lone competitor will need to deconstruct the car down to units that are possible to manually carry to the finish line.
