SHIFT

Animated Stills: 5.5ft X 11ft, 7ft X 11ft

2024

Based on LWS’s 2022 artwork, “SHIFT” – inspired by Sir David Attenborough’s 2020 documentary, “A Life on Our Planet”.

Leveraging its debut at the National Mall, SHIFT extends its narrative and mission through a collection of ultra-high resolution Animated Stills.

Vividly portraying SHIFT within its iconic setting throughout the week, the collection commits 30%, roughly a third, of its gross sales to the permanent protection of global wilderness and biodiversity through its collaboration with World Land Trust.

“At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, a public art installation titled “SHIFT” quietly came to life at the National Mall in our nation’s capital. Inspired by Sir David Attenborough’s 2020 documentary, ‘A Life on Our Planet,’ and positioned in the shadow of the Washington Monument, the artwork posed a vital question: How do we define freedom today, given its irrevocable link to the health and sustainability of our planet?

SHIFT arrived without fanfare, marches, or pronouncements customary of its setting to call on introspection – to prompt individuals to confront their personal habits and to link the mundane choices of daily life to global consequences.

LISA WOOD STUDIO, in collaboration with the World Land Trust presented SHIFT to illustrate the individual’s role in securing a sustainable future and to enable the permanent conservation of land and biodiversity directly through the artwork.”
