Amy and the Tree Museum

John Leben's avatar John Leben

My ArtPrize entry is a 2-D installation about the dangers of Global Warming that includes three distinct media: digital paintings, a book and a movie. I created the paintings first, and it inspired a story about the dangers of global warming. I turned the story into an eBook (https://www.paperturn-view.com/?pid=MTU158055) and the book into a movie. Climate Change is the most important aspect of this installation, but it is fascinating how each medium... paintings, words, and movie... reaches the audience in a different way. Watch the movie. It is the most powerful of the three media. Amy and the Tortoise is the name of the book and the movie. The book is in eBook format, seeking a print publisher. The movie has won ten awards internationally at film festivals in India, Toronto, London, Greece, Los Angeles, Austin Texas and Silicon Valley and is being considered for 39 more festivals around the world. I would like it to play at ArtPrize this fall along with my painting and eBook.
