Chicago artist Jane Fulton Alt created a conceptual photographic project called “Crude Awakening” to “speak not only about what was happening in the Gulf of Mexico but also have it relate to the issue of energy consumption and exploitation of the earth’s resources worldwide.”
Alt’s poignant images, all of which were taken along the shores of Lake Michigan in Illinois, portray a wide array of models dripping with a non-toxic substance simulating oil with the water in the background.
