Introducing Diana Condoros

Imagine my surprise and utter delight when I recently I stumbled across the website of a graphic artist, Diana Condoros, who has made silk-screen prints depicting a cubic mile of oil!  Check out her work at  Here's an image of one of the prints. Other artwork related to a cubic mile of oil is under the tab "Graduation 2011." 

I contacted her and found out that for her graduation in Infographics she chose to depict the energy challenge, but as she put it:

"...I struggled to find good information and how to visualize  the numbers.  As you probably know, the internet is full of it, but I needed something that would make this topic more understandable.  Most of it I rejected because I could not prove its reliability or get the essence. Until I found A Cubic Mile of Oil."

The world needs to have people from all walks of life to engage in a sustained dialog about energy choices.  I appreciate Diana’s effort, and hope her work inspires others to join in the discussion.
