Toronto artist Luis Jacob worked with student artists Lisa Figge and Patricia Mader to develop their projects.
Lisa Figge Ecological Citizenship
This participatory project asked participants to carry out a set of activities as they considered what their personal ecological citizenship profile might look like. Focusing on coffee consumption, Figge’s piece addresses the concerns, both local and global, that surround the complexities of the coffee ritual and its implications in terms of the environment.
Lisa Figge lives and works in Kingston. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree from Queens University in 2008 and is currently a Masters candidate in Environmental Studies at Queen’s.
