Seeing Green Differently


Making a little layered art.

Another Sunday. Another experiment leading to something a little more artistic than documentary.

It appears that I’m confused. I’m not. We’ll get to that in a few lines.

I’m pretty convinced that Mother Nature is angry with us. I think that normally she seeks stasis, but not these days. In the U.S. we were hit by a major hurricane. In Asia we were hit by a super typhoon. At the same time. In two different oceans. My beloved Hong Kong has taken a beating. Buildings were swaying. Streets were flooded. Over 500 flights were cancelled from one of the world’s busiest airline hubs. People were bailing water out of their balconies trying to prevent floods at — oh, let’s say — the 18th floor.

What does all this tell you? What should it tell you?

I could do a litany of weather-related events this year. But, you already know them. I think it’s time to get started. Really get started. Banning plastic straws isn’t enough.You already know the rest. Act on it. If our leaders don’t believe in science, you know what to do. Vote. Vote them out. It is time for a change. Across all levels of government. Across both major parties. At the top. Vote the old white men out of office who are stuck in the last century. Or, maybe the century before. The 19th Century.

I’m sorry to say that you are going to be stuck with my exhortations to vote. To make a difference. To make a needed change. I’ll do this maybe once a week until the mid-term elections. It’s necessary.

Anyway.

The picture. Obviously, I’ve been chasing a lot of green. This time I layered two images and merged them together to make more of an artistic statement. I’m not confused about vacillating between documentary and artistic work. One supports the other. Maybe, somewhere along the line, I’ll make a breakthrough.

Who knows?
