There are many visual representation of the impact of leaving your carbon footprint. On most of them, it is shared that when we emit too much CO2 into the air, something visually horrible will happen. Though it does happen, it mostly in-immediate or happening somewhere else in the world. What actually happen in front of us is the opposite. Usually when we are leaving our carbon footprint, an immediate effect that is directly viewed in front of us is good; we get to travel faster, things get done easier etc. This contrasting representation of visuals, in my opinion, makes climate change/global warming warnings feels like one of those fake news. I think it is necessary to place an additional visual imagery to create an understanding that leaving a carbon footprint does not look as bad as what the advertisements and articles shows you, it can even look aesthetically pleasing. This artwork aims to create an understanding that practical facts and visual impact are very different when it comes to global warming. For this video, though I know from the constant loud rumbling noise of the engine that verbally reminds of the size of sound and air pollution emitted, my eyes visually see a different message that is both beautiful and calming.
