The Smoke Wave series are graphite drawings drawn from satellite images taken of the Fort McMurray fires at the Tar Sands in Canada. These fires and the fossil fuel extraction surrounding them sparked a national debate in Canada on climate change. Smoke waves are tiny airborne particles from the fires that can travel hundreds of miles from the site of the fire and may cause severe air pollution.
