FRESH 2017 ANNUAL SUMMER EXHIBITION

JAMEY STILLINGS — CHANGING PERSPECTIVES: JAPAN

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

"CHANGING PERSPECTIVES: Renewable Energy Around the World" is the title for a connected set of aerial and ground-based photography projects documenting renewable energy development. 

These aerial images were taken in August 2016 over Tokyo and Kobe/Osaka, Japan. During these flights, I encountered a wide range of photovoltaic projects on former golf courses, quarries, dams, man-made islands, and floating projects on ponds and reservoirs. Projects were interspersed in urban and suburban communities, industrial zones, and forested areas in unique and visually compelling ways. 

I seek to encourage our conversation about energy, climate change, and the imperative of creating a sustainable future.
