The Power Grid

5% of the world’s CO2 emissions come from US electricity production. There are 8,521 specific sites where this happens. The Power Grid is an exploration of this landscape.

The Power Grid is a visual archive and 12-hour roomscale video projection taking viewers on a “molecule-eye’s view” of the physical places on the planet that US electricity production is embedded. Journeying between the surface and the atmosphere, The Power Grid attempts to provide a way to imagine and consider the abstraction of statistics, which remain the main narrative tool for evoking the urgency of climate change.
