Crude Awakening

2010/07/03

Jane Fulton Alt is a fine art photographer who was moved by the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to produce a YouTube video entitled “Crude Awakening”. Fulton Alt’s dramatic pictures of people covered in oil are set to  Johnny Cash’s version of  “Hurt“.

Fulton Alt says:

Living on the shores of Lake Michigan, I am acutely aware of the disastrous toll the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has taken on all forms of life, especially as our beaches opened to the 2010 swimming season. This environmental, social and economic catastrophe highlights a much larger problem that has inflicted untold suffering as we exploit the earth’s resources worldwide.

We are all responsible for leading lives that create demand for unsustainable energy.
We are also all responsible for the solution and we must work together to protect the balance of life.

From Fulton Alt’s website, a link to ThomasFrank.org. Thomas is an artist who lives under the shadow of the BP plant in East Chicago, Indiana. Fulton Alt writes: “When I contacted him earlier in the week he was “in Detroit at the U.S Social Forum working on a response to the TAR SANDS, another horrible no good disaster BP is deeply involved in.”
