We all use energy everyday, but do we know where it comes from? How is it produced, distributed, and used within a particular space? How can a piece of graphic design work unpack the larger social, economical, environmental or cultural implications, or both, of energy production, distribution, and delivery? Can graphic design challenge our passive attitudes toward energy usage?

To find out, come join us for the final installment of the Visualizing Hidden Energy Narratives exhibitions! These students' installments cover a range of topics and storytelling methods that will expose CCA's energy narratives and awareness through visual and spatial conversation. Installments take place over much of the San Francisco campus, so join the tour at 3:30 p.m. to see all of them.
