Environmental Consciousness features five distinct artworks by Alexander James Hamilton centred around his core medium of water. Including works that explore the energy of a black hole as seen reflected in water, vast ice sculptures created from crude oil and water hidden in the winter forests of Siberia, to extensive animation works projected over a blackwater reflection pool at the critically acclaimed Dark Vat project. These explorations into the raw power of nature bring to question conventional beliefs about our existence with a collection that reflects Hamilton's lifelong investigation into the impacts of a changing environment with a continuous passion for knowledge, field exploration, cultural and community led projects. These works highlight the beauty and ephemerality of life and to question our impact on the world around us.
"Nature is danger and beauty in a never ending dance." - Alexander James Hamilton.
