In recognition of World Earth Day (April 22nd) the Earth Vision Institute invited artists to post images of what inspires them. Founded by James Balog, the organisation was set up to
"integrate art and science to reveal environmental change and inspire a balanced relationship with nature".
Much of my work over these past few years has been inspired by the work of this team. It was a delight to contribute to the occasion, and a lovely surprise to come third in the competition. Their work continues and can be followed at www.earthvisioninstitute.org/
This was part of a series of hand made pages which had text incorporated in the paper pulp. They were called 'Are we Listening?' Inspired by the retreat of glaciers and dissolving ice, I wanted to convey how words can also be lost if we do not listen or pay attention to what is happening around us.
Here you will find a gathering of thoughts, notes, and images which inform my work. A "virtual sketchbook" of projects and ideas as they evolve.
