Earth Entrapment: Predictions for 100 Years Hand-painted, forcefully twisted rope, house paint, polymer, iridescent stainless steel and pearl paints, Elmers glue, Magna-tac, digital printing on fabric. 8" x 11" x 28"

The metaphorical meaning of entrapped has a dark, malevolent, premeditated intention. The green earth is entrapped in the shiny white atmosphere of rope, CO2, around it. Little spikes of digital printing give dire predictions for the next 100 years.
