In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, spilling 4.9 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Four years later, WAKE meditates on the continued presence of the oil industry in southern Louisiana. By bringing together the perspectives of scientists, environmentalists, oil industry workers, and Louisiana residents, WAKE asks: What do we do with an industry that supports the livelihoods of millions of people and yet destroys the environment we all live in?
Created during summer 2014 by Haverford's Interdisciplinary Documentary Media Fellows Hilary Brashear ‘14, Dan Fries ‘15, Gebby Keny ‘14, and Sarah Moses ‘16 in collaboration with Artist-in-Residence Vicky Funari and Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Studies Helen White.
Sponsored by the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center, the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, the Office of the Provost’s Louis Green Fund, and the Department of Instructional and Information Technology Services.
