About this project
Carbon Copies is a project to offset the carbon emissions released in the production of contemporary artworks. The Carbon Copies are representations of contemporary artworks, scaled according to the volume of carbon dioxide released in the production of the original work. The price of each Carbon Copy is the exact dollar amount required to remove this quantity of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through the purchase of certified carbon offsets. Carbon offsets fund projects that actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or curb its release. The proceeds from the sale of each Carbon Copy will be converted into carbon offsets, and the carbon footprint of the original artwork erased.
100% of all funds raised through the sale of Carbon Copies will be transferred to an agency that will broker the purchase of carbon offsets. I therefore need to raise additional funds to help cover the production of a catalogue that documents the project. The money raised through Kickstarter will go towards printing costs.
Carbon Copies will be shown at Foxy Production in New York City, January 6-14, 2012.

Custom Carbon Copy. -10 tons CO2 or less. I will work with the buyer to select a contemporary artwork to offset. Are you a collector? Perhaps we might offset a work in your collection. An art aficionado? We could offset a favorite recent work.
I will calculate the carbon footprint of the work, re-make the work as a Carbon Copy, and offset the carbon emissions of the original work.
The Carbon Copy will be conferred to the buyer along with certification that the full carbon emissions as calculated for the original work have been offset.Estimated delivery:
