Earthling Mask

Human understanding has come far away from the reality that we are not separate from the earth, we are the earth. How do our responsibilities to ourselves, each other and our world change if this reality was the basis of our collective thought and action?

The mask depicts an ecosystem from above consisting of lakes, streams, wetlands, fields and forests.

"The imminent and expected destruction of the life cycle of world ecology can be prevented by a radical shift in outlook from our present naive conception of this world as a testing ground of abstract morality to a more mature view of the universe as a comprehensive matrix of life forms."
- Vine Deloria, Jr. God is Red, 1973
