The earth is falling on my head


I love this image  by my friend Chip Thomas, the wheat pasting photographer and medical doctor on the "Rez" in Shonto, AZ.  It speaks volumes.

thanks for running this heidi. for more background on the image, 350.org will be launching an international campaign 09.24.11 to raise awareness around carbon emissions. they asked street artists all over the world to generate work with this theme. as someone living on the rez where coal is mined and burned, i chose a lump of coal as a metaphorical black cloud over the head of future generations. stay tuned. i'll be getting images of the installation out around the 24th and thanks again. peace.

This is a really interesting piece of artwork, reminded me of this piece by Pat Carr, titled "Live Laugh Lament". https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=196038897104392&set=a.196038807104401.40664.108619605846322&type=3&theater
