Climate Change: It's Global and Personal

 

"One World, One Chance" was created for the Handweavers Guild of Boulder 2018 juried show themed "Reflections on Climate Change."  This art quilt is created from 100% cotton fabrics that have been pieced to create a 48" round quilt of the earth, with the North and South American continents suggested in outline.  The free-motion quilting is in the form of words that span from carbon-emitting fuels (e.g. coal, fossil fuel, oil) on the dark side of the earth to clean energy sources (e.g., solar, wind, electric) on the light side.  

 

The world's response to climate change hinges on moving to clean energy. There is hope: although this is not something we can tackle as individuals, nations can invest in research, development and implementation of clean energy infrastructure. Yet, even as we move towards clean energy, we all, as individuals, must reckon with our daily dependence on carbon-emitting fuels that degrade our atmosphere, our environment, our world.

 

Amy Mundinger won the Handweavers Guild of Boulder Juror's Award and the Citizen's Climate Lobby Prize for "One World, One Chance" in November 2018.
