Global Bloblem, 2014
The intention behind this work is to bring complex issues, such as globalism, climate change, and international strife into the audience’s consciousness without being overtly didactic and heavy-handed. The sculpture is made out of the national flags of many countries. The upper part represents the top 10 worst contributors of greenhouse-gasses in the next decade, while the lower portion is formed by the flags of the 10 countries most affected by the problem. Paul’s desire is to make an elegant and simple landmark charged with a serious issue facing all of us today.
