2021, Color Video, 3 minutes 49 seconds


“Left for Dead” written and performed by Chris Ramos


After a difficult 2020 burning a snowman in effigy seemed very appropriate. With some well-placed bundled newspapers, branches and gasoline the snowman was “burned.” As the song implied, we should have been celebrating the passing of a year and welcoming a new one with a beer but instead we were left shaking our heads. As the world continues to use fossil fuels, will we accelerate the already noticeable effects of climate change? How many more snowmen will we be able to build as climate change continues to affect weather patterns?
