ART AS ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION

Jorge Rodriguez Gerada
Terresterial Series to stop fracking in Pennsylvania

Why are you on Attlas?

I have joined Attlas because it allows me to welcome investment from my closest supporters. That investment will provide me with the freedom I need to create artwork that promotes lateral thinking and positive social and environmental change.

I am critical of how advertising has crept into so many facets of our lives. As such, I work to counter its influence by using the same codes used by advertisers - such as scale, visibility and eye-catching images. I want these new iconic images to be huge and placed in strategic places. The location, the scale and the materials that I decide to use are usually chosen to emphasize what I am trying to state with each project.

On Attlas, individual supporters become an active catalyst in my creative process. My art creation can remove itself from the conditions imposed by the market. Through Attlas, art can again find a base built on philosophical and ethical principles that have significance beyond the aesthetic.

Once completed, my artistic projects will transcend the creative process and resulting artwork. These works will surpass the anecdotal limits of commercially motivated contemporary art by establishing real, beneficial change in a community's reality.

What are you making?

Fracking is a relatively new technology in which a proprietary chemical mixture is pumped underground at extremely high pressure, fissuring the bedrock to release oil and gas. Opponents of the process say it contaminates wells and groundwater among other negative effects. It's terrible isn't it ? But I have a plan and together we can start a change!

How often do you post your creations?

I will post the images and video into my Attlas portfolio for my investors to view what they have helped create. Updates on my progress will be posted frequently during the creation process.

What will you actually do with my support?

My initial goal is €20,000 to create numerous water molecule shaped installations of varied sizes throughout the Pennyslvania fracking area that we wish to create a unified artwork when viewed above.Therefore the entire area where the multiple piece installation can be protected. So, are you in with me to take an action and protect the environment through art ?

In 2018, I plan to create "Terresterial Series" to stop fracking disaster in Pennsylvania. I would like to create a Land Art Piece in the area of fracking with validity and through this piece's legal protection, the land will be protected.
