I believe that climate change is the most significant environmental issue of our time. These images are from a body of work that explores climate change in the Peruvian Andes. In this body of work I seek to create a visual metaphor to express the water resource issues associated with a warming planet. I traveled with a team of climate researchers from Ohio State University to the White Mountains of Peru. We hiked up to 14,000 feet and saw glaciers, azure green lakes, cold streams, wild flowers, and local people herding livestock. I learned how climate change is causing the glaciers we visited to melt and why there is no longer enough snowfall to replenish them. Peruvians have historically relied on this melt water during the dry season for the needs of people and the entire ecosystem. The climate researchers are working to understand the hydrology in this ecosystem with the future goal of helping Peru adapt to the changing climate. I was inspired by what I learned while traveling with the climate researchers. Through my artworks I hope to call attention to climate change and its impacts.
