Conservation! is an experimental video and animation composite focusing on the topic of energy conservation methodologies and cultural practices. Conservation! uses seductive imagery and a pervasive tune to embark on a journey through layers of plastic, electricity and gas consumption.

In current society, there are frequent policies and topics centered around the need to conserve gasoline, oil, water, industrial materials and electricity – but are we really ready to do the work to conserve? Is it difficult and painful to conserve and do we have to sacrifice current lifestyles? Can we change how we work and live now; to make sure we have resources tomorrow? Can we adapt to the “pain” of having to conserve” and learn to live with it – or even learn to like it?

Conservation was remastered and reedited in 2011 as Conservation V.2.
