Covering the extinction of several species to the conservation efforts of the 21st century, this video uses a series of original artworks to tell a tale about biodiversity.
Mother Nature’s tale: An artistic perspective on the holocene extinction
This video follows the perspective of Mother Nature, a personification of our distressed Earth, who is suffering from the effects of climate change and human actions such as deforestation. Through several original digital art pieces, I hope to tell a story about the importance of biodiversity.
For me, being able to use this creative outlet to share such a powerful narrative shows that anyone, using any of their interests/talents, can raise awareness about environmental issues. My art is a reflection of myself and the issues that are of importance to me.
I want to inspire others to partake in environmental activism in any way that they can. This video not only includes inspiring stories of conservation successes (such as that of the gray wolf and the bald eagle), but also showcases statistics of extinction that will hopefully display the dark reality of the situation we face.
Many seem to forget that we are currently in an age of mass extinction, and that a threat to one species is a threat to all. We must learn to respect the flora and fauna that we share this land with, and protect the wildlife that we have already caused harm to. This video aims to achieve this by presenting viewers with an emotional and artistic chronicle of the holocene extinction.
