Oil Rush

Provocative confrontation of video of oil trains transporting up to 360 barrels of oil a day, projected into the beauty of a sea shell, represents the fragility of the environment in relation to potential oil spills together with the process of “fracking” used to extract the oil from underground.

Oil trains travel through the center of small towns and the backyard of urban areas to ocean ports for exporting oil to foreign countries.
