These global warming artworks represent a synthesis of my experiences in the Arctic and interests in and concerns about the future of our planet. They contain a multiplicity of different perspectives simultaneously in each piece. My viewpoint moves in and out of the landscape but always from above. They map my bodyís relationship to the terrain; I am not looking out at it, Iím grounded in it or floating above it. Itís vast flatness and virtually no sign of human presence for thousands of miles, make it at once incredibly distant and also very intimate. I move in and out of this space, at once attached and grounded, at once detached and unrelated. The pieces thus become metaphors for a state of being not unlike our connection to climate change and global warming - intimately connected to our environment and responsible and eager to assist in reversing a potential planetary disaster and simultaneously detached from the vastness of the problem and our feelings of impotence to effect change.
