From South Africa to Australia to Germany to the U.S., “Drought” has become a more evident threat to our ecosystem. “Human-caused global warming is responsible for more than half the increase in forest aridity (dryness) across the U.S. west coast.” (SciLine)
The Rorschach inkblot could be interpreted as a mask by the collective psyche of 2020, although historically it was commonly interpreted as two waiters bowing towards one another. Might we ever bow, with as much service, to nature?
Deforestation, systemic racism, a global respiratory virus… these themes of 2020 are sewn together by the ecology of disease and expressed in words like “I can’t breathe.”
"Ecology of Disease" is a series that expresses the interconnectedness of humankind and the natural world. The imagery is used to prismatically express what 2020 has un-masked. It hopes to convey a sense of empowerment and responsibility as we re-write the new normal.
