Amy Pekal
 

I believe in a climate-just future. Therefore, as an artist and researcher, I create situated artistic investigations located at the intersection of nature and culture to address climate breakdown as an ecological ethical, social, and political urgency. I utilize fieldwork and qualitative data to develop artworks that help communities, individuals, and institutions transition to a climate-just future. The paintings, sculptures, performative texts, and participatory events which emerge from the research process operate both as research objects to generate discourse and as facilitation tools to support the making of communities where we can encounter indeterminacy while at the same time look for co-authorship and collaboration. In doing so, I build, across difference, environmental identities that evoke repair, care, community, and the commons or in other words, infrastructures for living as naturecultures.
