Protecting Posterity

Artist/Curatorial Statement

This contemporary Coast Salish design depicts two ravens protecting an egg, a symbol of posterity. The ability to perceive the subtle egg in the centre of this design depends on lighting and perspective.

We will perceive posterity if we have a vision which is environmentally enlightened. We will achieve posterity if we have a vision with a planetary perspective. Fossil fuels forebode that dinosaurs didn’t become extinct by driving Thunderbirds off the circle of the earth. The Transformer warns the Western World that it has become a consumer culture catastrophe. We need to protect sacred sOIL. We need to protect the PLANet. We need to protect posterity.
