With the increasing need for energy self-sufficiency, Indian energy departments and private investors aim to embark on hydraulic fracturing within the Indian basins, specifically Cambay and Krishna-Godavari.
With the information and research done on fracking proving that this is a highly destructive process for local ecology, my project aims to protest and build a symbol that can be used in different forms of protest. I hand-stitched a t-shirt from old linens and embroidered the symbol as a primary process. In the future, I hope social media, real-world protests, and campaigns to appropriate the symbol and use it for information dissemination and recognizing the protest.
