Yandell Walton’s practice addresses human relationships with the physical systems of the planet by interrogating shifting environments caused by climate change. By using digital technology in the production and presentation of works, she aims to highlight the current technological climate and raise questions around its e ect on our rapidly changing world. Through creating immersive works that connect to the viewer, her installations aim to engage and inspire action from individuals towards a collective consciousness within an ever- changing and increasingly damaged planet.
