Tipping Point

This gallery includes Alke's work responding to the climate catastrophe and other anthroprogenic environmental crises, spanning a period of over 10 years. Alke always hopes that these works become dated because the environmental problem they draw attention to has been addressed; sadly, this is not the case.
