Earth’s climate is changing because the planet is loosing its ability to deal with CO2. Urbanism is expanding at rapid rates, mostly because technology gives us the ability to do so. Methane gases produced by grazing animals, industrial waste and human excessive consumption are all causes for enormous carbon footprints, making even the next decade a scary one to face. This work emotionally responds to our current status. We don’t have enough trees and we have too much CO2. A tough and very sad predicament.
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.
