Weather Woman speaks to the agency we have as humans to “keep our planet safe or contribute to its demise”, because “we literally have the ability to control the weather”.
Kayla shows us by “consciously reducing our carbon footprint EVERYDAY, we have the power to keep our planet healthy and substantially increase longevity.”
By coming together to care for each other and the planet, as well as challenging inequalities by being anti-racist and anti-sexist, we can create change.
About the artist
Hello! I’m Kayla, I’m 28 years old and currently live in Atlanta, GA. I’ve always been pretty creative but just started creating collages this year after seeing a friend post a few they created. I’m very passionate about lifting up black voices and showing my Black Pride through my art.
How does this piece express intersectionality?
Weather Woman connects to feminist and anti-racism movements, challenging who is seen to have and given power in our societies. By centring the non-white, female voice in the collage, Kayla makes space for those who have so often been ignored in the climate crisis. Considering the uneven effects of climate change particularly for womxn (including non-binary and trans people), is essential if we are to ensure climate justice.
