Fracking

FrackingOnceFarms

I was moved to design this poster on frack­ing after watch­ing the doc­u­men­tary, “Gasland,” writ­ten and direct­ed by Josh Fox. Lis­ten­ing to the peo­ple whose lives have been imme­di­ate­ly affect­ed by frack­ing on or near their prop­er­ty is an eye-open­er and a call to action.  While frack­ing occurs or may begin in many dif­fer­ent envi­rons, includ­ing in my city, I used the red barn in this image because of the threat to my beau­ti­ful beloved home state of New York. I warm­ly remem­ber count­less rides with my grand­par­ents through the lus­cious coun­try­side, being taught to love nature, to hon­or our farm­lands, to val­ue those dis­tinc­tive red barns. Those kinds of places are now suf­fer­ing from or being threat­ened by  envi­ron­men­tal destruc­tion due to frack­ing.

I learn and am inspired by your comments!
