Enjoy Fracking

This anti-fracking poster draws from Marvin Gaye’s song “Mercy, Mercy Me” to further describe the earthly impact of human actions. The focus of this poster is on offshore fracking, which for the most part has been unregulated, resulting in the dumping of chemical exhaust fluids into the ocean. This shady business would theatrically be portrayed under the cover of darkness due to the anonymity of those approving oceanic fracking. The word “Enjoy” has a satirical quality that is represented by the sickly green typeface, which draws a connection to hazardous waste containers. Similar to fracking’s hazardous byproducts, the toxic text is seen dispersing into the water at night.
