Earth Day Installation for an exhibit: Six feet of Connection: Back to our Roots. Curator Marissa Caichiolo invited artists to try something new. Set aside your art supplies and use only nature. I created this snake because they shed their skin and are symbols of transformation. I am trying to change my art making process. My reliance on toxic art materials is out of alignment with my values but it is hard to change. This piece has given me pause to rethink my work at least for today. Impermanence is challenging to embrace.
