Enbridge’s Line 3 project is sadly only one of the most recently contested situations where aging fossil fuel infrastructure threatens water safety, disrupts healthy ecosystems, and trespasses on indigenous lands. Re-percussions dramatizes how disastrous unintended consequences can be. The looping video is a metaphor for the repetitive fallacy of entrusting the environment to corporations—like Enbridge, whose logo features a yellow ‘E’—that are ultimately motivated by profit above all else.
