Exploration of energy, power and connection.
Why is the government not exploring renewable energy if they wish to be economically viable and sustainable without increased imports? Blooming Ludus has been creating performative artworks and interaction with communities surrounding various environmental issues. We want to bring this issue of fracking and energy closer with our new artwork Power Story to open up the discussion, sharing ideas, and re-emphasising future of renewable energies BEFORE it’s too LATE.
As Tony Bosworth, an energy campaigner of Friends of the Earth insists, ‘shale gas is not the solution to the UK’s energy challenges’ (2015). Following the Paris climate change deal, the government need to focus on supporting and developing renewable energy sources for the future. Power Story will take people on an adventure showing how our life is connected to energy sources we use and how that affects our relationships with our environments and each other.
The government letter shows that ministers hope for exploratory fracking wells to be up and running by 2017, with production following by 2020 and a “maturing industry” established by 2025. (Guardian 2016)
