THREADS THAT BIND US - EARTH ELEGIES

Yeshiva University Museum
Woman of Valor Exhibition

An early Landsat satellite image was used as a reference source to create a large 1978 painting of the Niagara Falls area, the site of the Love Canal disaster upon our return to our Yaddo Residency Fellowships.

It was hung from the ceiling above the framework used to create the Tapestry of Hope interactive weaving done by exhibition viewers




 

Tapestry of Hope

This poem was written as an invitation for visitors to be an interactive part of the Threads That Bind Us installation. It invited them to participate in the weaving of a tapestry while contemplating our individual responsibility for the future well being of the Earth.

The full body x-ray was  used as a charting device to depict the timeframe of the doubling of the Earth's population. Note how close the bars have become - showing the rapidity of this acceleration at an ever- increasing rate.

These are images from a body of work on the
1978 Love Canal
disaster. They are a reminder
that we
are all married to the Earth.

 

 


Intertwined within the fabric

   

Threads of many colors

   

Savored for the moment

   

Our place in the universe

 

Man is but a strand
in the web of life
