Raising the Temperature addresses contemporary artistic response to observed anthropogenic challenges to the environment. No one is external to the social and cultural context of life. The environmental crisis is the result of decades of commitment to the priority of material value to the exclusion of cultural change and sustainability. Human survival demands a reconfiguration of lifestyle in the context of a re-estimation of global values in Eco-preference. The words Raising the Temperature are a metaphor for this issue which is the responsibility of us all.
