Project Overview

The echoing sound of animal life has always been a beautiful melody. The croaks and groans of frogs form the beautiful chorus that has filled the air of our forests. But suddenly, they went mysteriously silent. In the 1980s, scientists encountere the deadly fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, a type of Chytrid.

Silenced Forests is an interactive installation, print piece & website created to get people to understand how their actions affect the environment, focusing on a specific problem within animal extinction.
