About The Artwork

While climate targets for 2050 mostly target reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, how do we deal with the existing excess carbon in our atmosphere? In 2021, Elon Musk and Peter Diamandis announced XPRIZE Carbon Removal, the largest incentive prize in history to attract and inspire innovators to develop and scale carbon removal solutions to combat climate change. Since the launch of the prize, over 1,330 teams from around the world have registered to compete, representing upwards of 8,400 individual team members from 88 countries. This artwork imagines a cabin capture "factory", with enormous fan sucking carbon from the air, and sending it deep underground for permanent storage. Of course it's really just a photo of a Pentium computer motherboard, modified in post to resemble look like an aerial view of an industrial city. I added some "atmosphere" to the image to give it more realism.

Christopher Schmitt is a lens-based artist residing in Ottawa, on unceded Anishinaabe territory. His work explores disruptive technologies and the impact they have on the networks of our minds, and on our land. Schmitt’s work examines the idea that perhaps this dark side is not a mirror reflection of our society, but rather a new world entirely. His work helps viewers navigate between abstraction and reality, providing visual clues to this uncertain virtual landscape. Schmitt was the recipient of a City of Ottawa Creation and Production Grant in 2022, an Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Grant in 2023. His photographs have been published in PhotoEd (Spring/Summer 2022, Winter 2023), Do It For the Grain, Ottawa Private Art Label (OPAL), and have been purchased by the City of Ottawa.
