Have you ever thought that one day in the near future we would suffocate to death from the extreme heat? While I'm telling you this will happen if we let the weather get warmer day by day. We will suffocate to death from the extreme heat and the high concentrations of the near-ground ozone caused by the extreme heat. Therefore, this project aims to raise people's awareness on the issue of the extreme heat through a way of performing a sense of suffocation recorded by photographs and objects. I want more people to take more actions on the global warming, not business as usual.
Inspiration & Research
With the global warming, the whole world is like starting a furnace mode in recent years. Many people were killed by such extreme heat. As a piece of BBC news noted that such extreme heat is like a heat dome hanging over us and it's hot and suffocation. One of reasons why result in this extreme weather could be associated with the high concentrations of the near-ground Ozone that makes people hard to breathe, as evidenced by a scientific article from an American scientist.
This way aims to express an idea to raise people's awareness on the extreme heat through a way of performing a sense of suffocation caused by the extreme heat.
Making Process & Works
The final works created by a way of melting acrylic hemisphere with heating gun were developed based on the creative expression. These works are to further provoke people to pay more attention to the serious issue of the extreme heat, and the way of shaping acrylic hemisphere with heating gun was inspired by the melting plastics in extreme heat.
