FIGHT / SURRENDER
Hand-bound photocopied book with screenprinted cover. 2017.
Collaged text sourced from a year's worth of articles on the topic of global warming and related subjects.
Part of the GIVE UP AND PARTY body of work, which draws from a list of human responses to crisis from Margaret Atwood's Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth. In Atwood's fictional epilogue, a ghost lists FIGHT and SURRENDER as the human responses to a wartime crisis. My book, with its circular format, aims to melt the distinction between opposites. It dreams of a world in which humans are open, vulnerable and kind, tenaciously seeking understanding.
