Hubbert's Peak is a project based on energy use and consumption with emphasis on the use of petroleum as a source of energy and as a source of materials. The study began through a study of the feed-in tariffs for renewable energy self-sufficiency. Work began during a residency in Vermont in April 2012, the US's first state to enact a feed-in law.
The main emphasis of the work is on plastic, our ideas of plastic as a sustainable or non-sustainable medium, and what might happen to the production of plastic should petroleum resources run out.
