Speaker Face, one of our From The Stage artists, has created a wonderful tribute to the planet for Earth Day and we wanted to share it with you.
Orogenesis is the process in which mountains are formed. This piece is a meditation on the perpetual transformations and movements of our planet, and our role w...ithin it. To us, it feels "still," but the Earth is not stagnant. It is in a constant state of fluidity, and the occasional times we witness its shifts, we are quickly reminded of our delicate position on its surface. This is the only formation of Earth that gets to be documented and enjoyed by humans. The mountains will outlive us by the time they change, yet we are very capable of wounding them with our arrogance and short-sightedness. Let Earth Day remind us of our privilege and responsibility, and spend the time to enjoy our planet.
