Grevy’s zebra are only found in Africa. They compete with cattle for the little water supply available. Poaching and loss of habitat due to large urbanizing efforts are the main causes of their endangered status. From a population of 15K in the ’70s, the population has declined about 75% leaving us with less than 2500 left in the wild. About 65 Million people annually move to urban areas due in large part to violence and climate change, which forces immigration.
This piece brings awareness to the plight of Zebras.
Acts of repetition and patterning are continuous during my creative journey. They help keep me centered and gain a sense of calm amidst current world chaos.
In this piece it manifests through meticulous and purposefully drawn, symbols mixed with binary code (ones and zeroes) clustered, repetitive and tightly organized. These represent noise and chaos. Part of that noise involves how present day tech consumption filters or even replaces so much of our real life experience with the actual world because the physical world is disappearing. Putting this noise into some sense of organization is satisfying and centering, and perhaps my nostalgia for how life was before technology comes into play and is part of the reason I am so sensitive to present day life on this planet.
