Twenty-four painted panels represent events affecting our environment and
actions exacerbating these events. Each panel is
divided into two sections to give two possible visual interpretations.
Events described by the panels are: extra-terrestrial impacts, solar storms, volcanic activity, eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, wind, dust storms, rain, flooding, hurricanes, storm surges, tornadoes, blizzards, drought, wildfires, earth shifting events, glacier melting and calving, permafrost melting and sea level rise.
The climate is changing, we cannot control the events that threaten our environment but we could have controlled our actions.
Now we may be powerless to stop this process.
