Global Warming Winter acknowledges the obvious catastrophic global changes that are ongoing. Rachel expresses a realization how absurd our dystopic future(s) really could be. Her built environment is a nod to simulated climates of outdoor waterparks. Not unlike the whimsically painted concrete and themed backdrops alluding to paradise within completely manmade terrain. In this installation, she critiques the materiality of simulated natural environments, a motif we may end up seeing more of as our myriad of climates progressively alter.
