As an artist and a curator I will educate other artists on the life cycle and environmental impact of their work and teach them how to reduce energy in their every day artistic practice. I will have an exhibition based on the artists who use the least amount of energy consumptive materials in their artwork and who modify their studios to be more energy efficient.
