Amid the most consequential geopolitical moments in a generation, Free the 11th (Child) sets its designs on the clean energy revolution with a spirit of truth-telling and possibility. Prone to exploring critical thresholds throughout his career, Eckblad responds in these works to the high stakes of public opinion and information control, especially. How do we as global citizens speak truth to power and stop the destruction? How do we insist on greater possibility? Pushing against decades of fossil fuel headwinds, many of these works (2017-present) explore the physicality and reactivity of Hydrogen, the lightest of all elements and humanity's best hope for non-polluting energy.
