Silent Crude, a purposely soundless work, is a textured rumination on oil, sustainability, resources, death, and ecological destruction. With heavy oil fire smoke emanating from the Husky Oil Refinery fire in Superior Wisconsin as a perpetual visual signifier, the immersive textured moods in Silent Crude lean into questions regarding the sanctity of fuel energy substances and maintaining the status quo.These moving image moments suggest inquiry into what is yet to come or what might be looming just over the horizon for the world in which we live and for the collective life of our human, mammalian species.
