November 1, 2018: Two Ideas Come Together

“Knit” (11.5″ x 6″ x 3″) is part of a larger series of work I am developing around nature, the metaphor of nests, and environmental conservation. Have you read the new U.S. government report about climate change? The first step is awareness. No judgments. No opinions. Just facts.⠀

GlobalChange.gov is a great place to start reading. You can read summaries or the extensive research. “A team of more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.”⠀

 

I put these two ideas together today in the studio. I have a bunch of photograph transfer prints from my hikes in Francis Marion National Forest (a South Carolina treasure!) of the longleaf pine trees. I decided to add these photos to the “walls” of my house. Excited about this!
