Abstract: Overpopulation by Komal Kapoor


The world is at the brink of 7 billion people and overpopulation is a growing concern. I would like to create an installation to be positioned strategically in the densely populated regions of the world. It would contain a room that projects the near-future where overpopulation will have become detrimental. The observer must push past a sea of people, engulfed by a stench of garbage and sewage resulting from the lack of resources to sanitize. The images on the wall will depict starvation and disease; water fountains will provide brown, murky water. The overall scene will of devastation in hopes of making individuals more aware of the consequences of our actions.
