The extremes of climate change led to this series, inspired by wind maps I saw during the polar vortex winter storms. As a Californian, I'm painfully aware of how wet winter storms and the new growth they create can lead to horrific fire seasons. I find that carefully burning the wind patterns into paper with a soldering iron is both a release of frustration and an expression of this reality.
