Without a Care
30” x 48” x 2”
Materials: pigment, medium, board, pages from a physics textbook
The torn pages of a physics textbook create a textured landscape at the bottom of Without a Care. These pages illustrate the basic principles governing the physical world and are the fundamental conceptual tools underlying our science and technology. We are fundamentally altering our soil, water, air, and food through our ubiquitous science, technology, and manufacturing. A glowing human egg rises like a sun above this landscape. Our highest priority should be protecting our diverse and precious genetic heritage. However, rising rates of infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects are clear signals we are ignoring this serious problem.
