2023 SWELL ARTWORK – Stark

After stopping social media, Daniel started re-reading books that left an impression from his youth. Ben Elton’s ‘Stark’, set in Australia, tells of billionaires as the bad guys and stoners as heroes. It’s a tale of warning about the rich leaving earth behind in a rocket ship when it becomes too polluted to survive. Of course, everyone dies. We’ve had a few billionaires sending rockets into space lately. Clemmett’s artwork inspires the question of what they are really doing about the looming extinction of our species? 

Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 8th – 17th September
