Entry Description

The first subject that came across my mind about climate change was the massive scale of fossil fuel demand. Our greed and dependency for oil has lead to many consequences such as the release of greenhouse gasses. These gasses are responsible for global weather and temperature change, causing everything else listed on my skin. The space on my skin is not sufficient to hold all the problems arising today, symbolizing the limited time we have to act and resolve this issue. I decided to change my body into a canvas of our self destruction, to spread the awareness that only we can change the way we treat our one and only planet, before its too late.
