Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint with Terreform ONE

Two-Part Digital Exhibition Invites Viewers to Examine the Relationship Between Human Consumption and Earth’s Finite Resources

Striking gallery adds urgency to addressing natural resource depletion and allows visitors to pledge immediate action

Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint” is a two-part exhibition addressing the urgent need to live sustainably within the Earth’s finite resources. Part II of the exhibition launches on Earth Day 2016 (April 22), and features works from 35 artists by invitation only, including the work of Mitchell Joachim and Terreform ONE. Joachim is an architect and co-founder of Terreform ONE, an interdisciplinary think tank that combines visionary designs with biology and engineering. In the work of Terraform ONE we see a hopeful vision for the cities and suburbs of the future.
The exhibition offers the opportunity for active engagement on issues of sustainability.  Each artwork in the online exhibition is paired with a series of “pledges,” actions that individuals can take in their own lives to reduce their environmental impact. Visitors who adopt one or more pledges will be able to share those pledges, along with an image of the artwork that inspired them, with their social networks on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Tumblr.  The exhibition will be promoted with the hashtags, #EndOvershoot and #OneEarth. 

“The ultimate objective of this exhibition is to create dialogue and inspire action. The interactivity and digital nature of this project makes it accessible to all audiences, which is vital because while this issue affects us all, we also all have equal opportunity to act,” says Executive Director Randy Rosenberg.
