After receiving cochlear implants last year, for my rather severe hearing loss, as part of my therapy I started listening to books. One of the first books I just by chance listened to was Naomi Klein's book "This Changes Everything, Capitalism vs. the Climate". This book was the catalyst to start working on a series of artworks about how society changes and how we can cope with such a dramatic systemic problem as climate change. With our ability to communicate so rapidly we have set in place the ability to transform our behaviors and attitudes in a way never before possible. This gives me great hope where hope is hard to find.
“Within beauty inherently lies tragedy but the grace in it is that it allows us to feel deeply and fully. For a moment art can sometimes capture that.”—Belinda Chlouber
