SOUVENIRS OF EARTH

Souvenirs of Earth /Mixed MEDIA Assemblage Installation / 2014
"If I had a moment to pack, what would I take with me to remember my experience of earth?  What would survive the exodus prompted by a disaster or the ascent through a heat-charged atmospheric barrier? And how would I protect my souvenirs in new environmental conditions on an airship or another planet?  What will remain of art: a surviving postcard?  What of culture: the shards of a baseball bat?  What of land: a seed?  What of love: a knot of hair?"
