Two-channel video installation, 2022-23

The Port of Corpus Christi is the largest port in the United States in total revenue tonnage and is the largest crude oil export gateway in the nation. The passage of these large ships are awe-inspiring in both the scale of the vessels, the length of their journey to this small seaside community, and the potential negative impact of its’ cargo. In Uptick, the repurposed stock ticker explores, using data, the disconnect between the immense petrochemical imports arriving daily, negative climate impact, and economic disparity in the region.
