Mobil Warming on Facebook
This project tackles climate change from the perspective of the petroleum and fossil fuel industry and their undermining of climate science and the human causes of global warming. Based on the logo, Mobil Warming – Go with the Flow, students researched the promotional materials and funding mechanism of corporations, businesses, organizations and individuals that deny that human activity is the primary threat to the planet’s sustainability.This project accompanies a survey of the artist’s work, particularly projects, actions and performances related to the environment and energy consumption.
Images from consumer culture, corporate and political advertising, and TV and video promotions are appropriated and re-imagined, creating posters, online and social media campaigns and informational and graphic media. Student work is exhibited in the Higgins Art Gallery and throughout the college.
