Description

The goal of this project is to delve into millennials’ understanding of animal species’ extinction and how that affects them. This will be made into an informative art series of three colored pencil pieces that looks at what will be lost with animal extinction and the emotional hole it leaves for people. The rate for animal extinction is increasing due to many man-made factors like plastic, pollution and deforestation; thus, this topic needs to be explored. This intersection of where animals and humans meet creates an intriguing interaction where the byproduct of human civilization is damaging wildlife. This project looks into changing rates of pollution, plastic and deforestation and sees if the younger generation is invested and what emotions are tied to these animals. Data was collected from documentaries and applied into colored pencil art pieces with mixed media elements. The pieces contrast something mundane with the harshness of animal extinction. A public critique was done after the pieces were completed to gauge the public’s understanding.
