This is a series of ink wash drawings I did for an Environmental Science class project on the 1984 MIC gas (methyl isocyanate) disaster that happened in Bhopal, India. A pesticides plant in the heart of the city (owned by Union Carbide and currently owned by Dow Chemical) malfunctioned and released approx. 40 metric tons of this gas into the city, killing 3,000 people and in the coming years, another estimated 15,000 to 20,000. Neither Union Carbide nor Dow Chemical have given proper compensation nor cleaned up the site. Although these images aren't necessarily accurate, I wanted to choose a sequence that would help sum up the event and its history. The third image shows Warren Anderson, the CEO of the old Union Carbide Corporation, who still has homicide charges against him from Bhopal.
