In the summer of 2014, Desiree Kane and I traveled to Nepal where we followed our friend and environmental scientist, Rupak Koirala, on a trip to interview people about the effects of climate change in his country and adaptation measures being taken to deal with it. The resulting project is a series of captioned video loops that live on a video screen in Packard Place, a co-working space in Charlotte, NC.
The project is meant to offer a perspective into lives in a third-world nation that are affected by consumption in first world countries like our own. The final irony is that Packard Place is sponsored by Duke Energy, one of the largest utilities on the planet.
The following .gifs are lower-resolution versions of the more than 50 video loops that have been playing in Packard Place’s hallway since December 2014.
