You And I Are Earth is the new title for my climate project 2022. The previous title was a practical description which explained my idea but I never intended it to be kept and always thought something would come my way which described my sentiments at some point.
The title is taken from an inscribed plate, exhibited in the Welcome Collection, which was found in a London sewer and is dated 1661. This plays exactly into my instinctive feelings about what is happening to nature and the climate; my ideas aren’t new, we do not exist in nature but we are nature, from whence we came we shall return.
I can now see the end of the project, all 50 panels have work on them, some will be changed, removed, painted over or edited so I expect I will complete all the work by end January 2023.
