The 6th Extinction work in progress

We're  currently experiencing the worst die-off since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. This time not by a comet but by our human impact on the environment since the industrial revolution. All of nature is a single organism, everything is connected, "quantum physicists have found that the boundaries that isolate one thing from another exist only at the most obvious and superficial level; at deeper levels all things-atoms molecules, plants animals, people participate in a sensitive, dynamic web of information" Rupert Sheldrake Ph.D..

Literally dozens of species are going extinct every day, at this moment the present rate of extinction is up to 140,000 species per year and is growing every hour.

This work is an ongoing artistic inquiry into the web of inter-species communication , through my art I offer a connection to 18 of the 1,000s of disappearing sentient beings .

As we lose each species we lose a part of our selves in the interconnected web of consciousness.
