From the artist

We are witness in the 6th and greatest extinction spasm in Earth's history. The roots of destruction lie in our lack of deep intimacy with nature. We are self-annihilating through our exocidal practice and nothing less than the reparation of soul and land will suffice or a sustainable future.
