With this piece I bring awareness to the plight of large wild cats. They are battling climate change, facing poaching and loosing their natural habitat. If we don’t shift the course of urbanism and our consumer habits for the health of this planet, we may end up living in a world where we only get to experience these magnificent animals virtually because none will be left.
I struggle with the amount of influence and power chaos and technology have over our planet, and how much it filters through all aspects of life. We have one planet to live on and the factor of time which holds constant. Tech power and consumption, virtual life, connectivity, isolation, sustainability, and humanity all share a common action thread of choice and are areas I research and try to respond to.
In pursuing a transformation of this struggle I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my personal iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work.
Here is a great article about the choices we make and how everything we do affects everything else and places us in current global predicaments
