Instead of looking down your nose at us, LOOK into our eyes and embrace the reflection of yourself.

The following quotes influenced me in the creation of this work:
“The present urgency is to begin thinking within the context of the whole planet, the integral earth community with all its human and other-than-human components." -- Thomas Berry, The Great Work
“...planet Earth is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects," — Thomas Berry, Edited interview clip from video recording by writer and teacher Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) in 1991
“Eyes are the mirror of the soul." — Ancient Proverb
“Look each other in the eye." “Let’s see eye to eye." “Make eye contact." “Eye on the ball." -- Common Idioms
The work is meant to be dynamic, somewhat ambiguous, vibrant and thought-provoking.
