Earth Won Now Earth

White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, US

Belief systems change when our infrastructure changes. Not because we choose it willingly, it is in response to global shifts that require us to change the methods we use to survive as a species. We’ve seen the patriarchy through to its end. Earth responded to our war upon them. We live the consequences. Earth won. It’s time for us to replace sky god, king, and patriarchy with peace, love, and loyalty to Earth.

I LOVE YOU EARTH ❤️

From my point of view, we do it cold turkey … or … accept ourselves as intentional participants in collective self-murder and mass extinction of species. There’s no middle ground.

Cold, Sharp and Merciless

Cold Sharp & Merciless is a short film created for the art call, Pollution from Greenhouse Gases, @whatsnextforearth. Deeply upset by the impact of environmental pollutions supported by industrial consciousness, this work recognizes Climate Change as the most serious problem caused by human-produced greenhouse gases. Most important, Climate Change causes the extinction of our global ecosystem. That is to say … mass global extinction. With special thanks to Post Carbon Institute, Richard Heinberg, for making Think Resilience a free online course available to all! If interested, go to: education.resilience.org

Unknowable Tomorrows

B&W photo taken with a Holga 120N, double exposure, caffenol processing, sea salt fix, 2021.

Breathing Holes, caged-contained-“protected” spaces. Breathing Holes, left relatively wild, not to prevent them from being depleted, but rather to make places for humans to safely enjoy nature’s bounty. These spaces, scattered here and there across this world… I call them Breathing Holes, and when I am within the boundaries, the more than human voices are alive and talkative. Together we look out beyond the edges that press in with their desire to consume, and we feel the massive human engine that never rests… A machine extracting, harvesting, devouring with an insatiable hunger.

…fighting to exist in Unknowable Tomorrows

Inspired by the Population and Consumption art call, I created a new piece for my Elsewhen series. There are too many of us consuming our host and home. Our way of life has become a self-generating machine without consciousness… are we a suicidal cultural collective?

Waking

Experimental film

A Moving Poem about Interconnection. Love is the way we find comfort in a world that is falling apart. Through love, we deeply connect with others and with the natural world. The shift from a narrative of domination and accumulation to a narrative of respect occurs through a world view that honors love above all else.

Location: California Colorado Desert Honorable Mention – Hollywood International Golden Age Festival 2020.
