“The news agencies I contacted had no idea what to do with time lapse footage of riots, which was okay with me because I had been thinking about recontextualizing news as art for some time. After that I got the bug. I chased down wildfires, walked down storm drains on the L.A. River and found abandoned houses where I could set up elaborate optical illusion paintings. The illusion part of the paintings are not an end in themselves in my work. They’re an intimation of things we can’t physically detect; a way to get an ever so slight edge on the unknowable.”

Report: Texas’ Proposed New Textbooks Offer False Information, Climate Change Denialism →

“Scientists agree that Earth’s climate is changing. They do not agree on what is causing the change,” the Heartland Institute passage reads. “Scientists who study the issue say it is impossible to tell if the recent small warming trend is natural, a continuation of the planet’s recovery from the more recent ‘Little Ice Age,’ or unnatural, the result of human greenhouse gas emissions.”

“Scientists believe the Earth is absorbing more of the sun’s harmful rays….Some scientists say it is natural for the Earth’s temperature to be higher for a few years. They predict we’ll have some cooler years and things will even out,” the textbook reads.

We are all we will ever have

Into the twilight
Undeceived
Unafraid
With eyes open
Together

Take care of each other
