Silkscreen, 24" x 36", 2020

     "Here am I" is the first of an in-progress series of screen prints created from interviews with climate activists throughout the world. John Lynes is a 92 year old UK based climate activist with an extensive history of protest movements and activism. In this piece, an excerpt of an interview I took with John is screen printed below a CMYK screen printed image of him being arrested, with a small block of fire added to address the urgency of the climate change movement.

     This piece was shown as part of the Royal College of Art Work in Progress 2020 show in London UK, in January 2020. It can also be viewed online as part of the Royal College of Art Final Degree 2020 Show.
