photos by Monet Malek and Clarke Henry
It is said that he who controls the weather, controls the world.The Global Climacteric is a group show lampooningthe politics and foibles of geo-manipulation. In spite of the overall satiric tone, the works in this exhibition have been manifested through a process of rigorous investigation and data accumulation. The exhibition's script replaces nuclear threat with climate change. Eco-politicsand geo-annihilation sub in for The Cold War when world leaders convened discussing solutions to correct past human mistakes while simultaneouslyposturing to take drastic measures to ensure a desired, albeit apocalyptic, future. The New Military Industrial Complex, for eco-geo-politico-manipulation, catalyses warfare between opposing governments as well as with nature itself by instigating unnatural earthquakes, storms, and other eco-disasters.
