Panic

Lindsay Farb

Our world is currently in grave danger due to the worsening effects of the climate crisis. If we, the human population, do not make a significant change right now, before we know it, we will all cease to exist. I cannot help but feel uneasy and panicked when confronted with such alarming information regarding the severity of the situation at hand. My piece, titled Panic, is a visual depiction of chaos and the feeling of panic that pumps through the veins of many due to our current and ongoing climate crisis. The composition consists of jagged and irregularly cut black paper where negative and positive space work in harmony creating an upward motion of energy cutting through the page to mimic piercing and fleeting thoughts. The texture of the individual and overlapping shapes add to the provoked feeling of frenzy, and the sharp, chaotic composition aids in this description of panic in response to our impending doom.
