"Crude  Awakening"

by Jane Fulton Alt

To have us figure out  the impact of the oil spill on Lake Michigan shores, Jane Fulton Alt coated friends and other volunteers with a non toxic oillike substance before taking pictures of them. She surely aims at showing no matter how far we live from Louisiana or the Gulf coasts... we are all concerned !

The photo showing  an empty lifeguard chair with the sign "No lifeguard on duty"(1) symbolises the dangers of deep-water drilling, she explains : "It means that no one is really guarding life, basically," she said. "We're involved in risky oil drilling practices that threaten everybody and everything that is living."


"Crude awakening" is a play on words : "crude oil" or "crude" also means 'pétrole brut'
