The recent fires in the Amazon rain forest and possible lifted restrictions on the largest temperate forest in the world, the Tongass national forest, weigh deeply among many other issues challenging our planet. While on the journey of making this piece, as I often do, I infused my thoughts with paying attention to breath, breathing in…breathing out…really tuning in to my breath and envisioning the Amazon and Tongass and their relationship to our planet and all of our lives. Envisioning fresh air, green and lush spaces, love and beauty We don’t need to be loosing more trees and natural habitats, home to millions of animal and plant life.
Swaying thoughts and energies toward solutions and hope is how I choose to steer my art.
NOTE: Throughout the work, you will find one's and zeroes and groups of many different symbols. The binary code(ones and zeroes) is the base language for all computers which make all technology possible. I incorporate the binary code to remind us how computers are penetrating every nook of life. I actually spell words that have been translated from our alphabet to binary code. The clutter of symbols parallel mnemonics with amnesia. An idea inspired by a universal feeling of information overload oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
