MOBILE GAS STATIONS PROJECT
(With Jonathan Olivares 2015—2020)
A gas station wouldn’t be the first place I would go looking for beneficial social ideals. For those who believe that man-induced climate change is real, value the wellbeing of the natural world and keep an eye on global conflicts over oil resources, the negative impacts of fossil fuels have eclipsed the better effects that oil and gas have had on society; like increased mobility and comfort. In 1965, as today, the gas station was the storefront for fossil fuels, a necessary evil for the millions of people whose daily lives ran on gas. It was for these people and their routine trips to the gas station, that Noyes work for Mobile was most generous.
