Description
This is a photographic sketch I created with professional dancers in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Working with different textures to represent petroleum products and water, I let the dancers bring their own interpretation to the story, creating a body of work that speaks to the struggle of wildlife after the spill.

  • What happened in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 had a profound impact on me. I couldn't shake the thoughts of the crude oil pumping into the water and the wildlife helplessly getting caught in such a toxic potion. Inspiration hit while working with a dance troupe on a separate project, and we discussed the idea of bringing this struggle into contemporary dance. I allowed each dancer to interpret the disaster their own way.
