By Bailey Aquila, VPA Arts & Tech majorBy Bailey Aquila, VPA Arts & Tech major. She says: My inspiration for this work was common park signage telling people to stay on the trail and take their trash with them during camping and hiking. It is important that we keep public landscape clean, so everyone can enjoy it and the wildlife does not get damaged. It is a privilege to explore, and that comes with responsibility.

 
By Mallory Arcena, AMD majorBy Mallory Arcena, AMD major. Mallory says: There seems to be a lot responsibility placed on the common individual to prevent climate change/global warming. I think it is important for us to take part in sustainable and eco-friendly practices, but sadly climate change can never truly be prevented due to the practices of many corporations.

AdaLee says: Inspired by the deadly coal industry and the toxic smoke that is constantly emitted by coal processing smokestacks every day. These smokestacks contributed to 68% of CO2 emissions in 2016 and are surely rising. Additionally, Hans Erni's Atomkrieg Nein poster greatly inspired the skull imagery in this piece.

By Alexa Bloedorn, AMD Arts & Tech majorBy Alexa Bloedorn, AMD Arts & Tech major. She says: I wanted to find a company that sells reusable bags and make a poster to promote the brand and eliminate the use of plastic.

By Joshua Kim, AMD student, Business Marketing major. Joshua says: "This is a disaster" In 2020 we saw more change in any other year. We realized as a society what is worth fighting for. We saw a virus shape the future of society. But most of all we saw the effects it had on our environment. 2020 was the craziest time of all. So will the way we acted in 2020 be able to have a safe environment for the future? Or will we be the ones to destroy our own planet?

By Cuban Latu, AMD 102 student, Game Design & Development major. Cuban says: My artwork shows the present and the future colliding through a portal of sorts. It is an extreme depiction of what our future will look like if we continue not looking after the environment.

By Sebastian Lizalde, AMD 102 student, Electrical Engineering major

By Sebastian Lizalde, AMD 102 student, Electrical Engineering major. Sebastian says: I have often felt that the theme of the Earth being subject to humans was overused and inaccurate. I found that I liked the inverse more, being that humankind is subject to the earth. Humans may be able to damage the earth, but the earth will always come out on top, even if it's down to moss and roaches. Humans are not destroying the earth, they are altering in a state that won't be able to support them (humans). I wanted to convey this theme in an epic and mythical image of the earth as an indifferent being that can rid itself of certain life to balance the ecosystem as if smiting a parasite.

By Dianne Preciado, AMD major with emphasis in Art and Visual Culture. She says: For this photo, I was inspired by texture and the materials of objects but also using texture as a narrative. To me photography is an interpreter for things we cannot always put into words, and in this photo the dirt can tell us the way it feels without being able to touch it. We are able to know that the ground is dry and that the ground needs water. The plastic bottles on the other hand serve as a juxtaposition to the dirt in terms of the material they both are made of, their “life-span”, and purpose. The irony of the water bottles being used as a container for water yet cannot nourish our land, to me speaks to the unbalance our earth is currently facing.

By Amanda Rij, AMD major. Amanda says: I wanted to spread awareness of the impact of turning off appliances. So much energy is wasted, which harms our atmosphere, accelerating climate change. It's simple, but hopefully effective.

By Nicole Stauffer, AMD major. Nicole says: I love bugs. It makes me sad to notice that there seems to be less every year. The QR code within the poster on the butterfly provides a recent study as well as information on the possible causes and effects this loss of biodiversity has.
