No One Is Listening, detail, paint, cord, mason line, inkjet on fabric, thread, 6.5"x24"x17"
Exhibited in "Bend, Fold, Manipulate For Peace" in which 20 artists used textile to "consider the problems of our planet and forcasts of a cataclysmic conclusion...and propose steps that will lead to a global peace...and a future built on possibilities where all life coexists on a nonhierarchial plane" Mary Kroetsch (curator)
All the greens and blues are symbolic of nature, seemingly calm and peaceful; the black ropes are symbolic of plants and nature dying from unseen contamination surfacing from underground, signs that something is very wrong here, but no one is listening.
