WMD Installation

Kevin Lamure's avatar Kevin Lamure

Artist Statement- W.M.D (Weapon of Mass Destruction) My work is intended to provoke and engage critical thought regarding the broad idea of consumerism and our habitual human nature of worshipping that of which society leads us to believe and makes us comforted and content. ‘W.M.D’ is static and stationary because this is where I feel we are headed. Oil is the means to an end. The work forces us to analyze our human needs verses our wants and to contemplate the cost of the decisions we make. Lets consider a renewed relationship with mother earth and every life form that depends on our collective freedom of choice. Our love/hate relationship of transportation through expedient and economical means via our reliance on oil is thought to be one of the greatest innovations of history. Although we all know deep in our thoughts, if continued the way it is; it will surely be our ultimate sacrifice and demise. Kevin Lamure 2018
