A Visual Language Approach to Communicating Ecological Issues in Nigeria


Abstract Ecological problems have remained a global pandemic. Everyone is entangled, not only in the consequences of environmental change but also in seeking a solution. For long ecological change problem has been a science-based problem requiring ‘scientific’ solutions. But now, non-scientists are variously attempting to bridge the science-action gap using their professional capacities. In visual arts, some artists are making vehement attempts around the issue, but visual design methods are yet to be potently enabled in communication and engagement. This vacuum has been identified. My practice-led explorations lends a creative voice and language especially to Nigerian’s ecological issues. My design works are reproduced for functionality while their dissemination are extended to socio-virtual platform for audience engagement.
