“Life Pods;” beautifully awkward objects made from found industrial and farm materials that are also survival chambers, equipped with oxygen tanks and communication devices. (Border Crossing Magazine)

A fifth-generation farmer who lives in the South Peace, Karl is a self-taught multi-media artist. His current explorations include large metal sculpture and mixed media, scavenging scraps and materials that surround his farm and community, an area currently being enveloped by the oil and gas industry. Karl applies his artistic talent to protest against the environmental issues that plague his farm, his community, and his personal psyche.
Life Pod – Executive, is one of his Life Pods series - beautifully awkward objects made from found industrial and farm materials that are also survival chambers, equipped with oxygen tanks and communication devices.
