Endcount is a collaboration between Lily Perthuis and Joe Bramwell-Smith. The name Endcount refers to the current total population of a species that is close to extinction. A number tending towards zero.
In 2010 Lily & Joe started collaborating on an idea of Lily’s for an art project documenting threatened species and Endcount was born.
This cutting-edge series aims to highlight the declining numbers of certain endangered species through a mixture of fine art and data visualisation. Each piece is a mix of code, print, canvas and paint that captures the extreme fragility of these creatures. Each artwork is a representation of the total number of remaining members of a given species ranging from a few hundred to a number of thousand.
If you love good art and care about the protection of endangered species this is a must exhibition to attend. Don't forget to bring your cheque book...
