Many people have read the most recent National Geographic issue on Water. 1% of the earth’s water is potable. Of that 1%, 70% of it goes towards agriculture. You and I benefit from that growing of course.
Take Me Back – An exploration of water, local clay, and time is in response to many things. The preciousness of object making. Making a zero impact on the earth making art. Corn, as Pollan says “the SUV of plants” and it’s clamor for fertilizers and water. Corn impacting the humidity of a region during peak growing season. And ideas and thoughts I have yet to have.
I came to corn and agriculture because of its beauty. That was 11 years ago. I realize now that it is 20 lifetimes of inspiration and art to make.
