A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
Political poetry intertwined with powerful activist art.
Artist’s statement: We have adapted to greed, consumerism, hate, injustice, war, destruction and sociopathy. Adaptation has kept us alive for millennia – and now it is killing us. We need a shift, a 99% lift – we need to lose the view that things are inherently awful and we can’t do anything about it.
We need to stop manufacturing consent and start manufacturing dissent – by the boat load, ship it out like Amazon knick knacks – from sea to shining sea and back again. We need hope – without optimism. We need to feel inspired. Art can, poetry can. Through our emotions, building the notions that we can – can Do Something
