The Everglades is America’s largest subtropical wilderness and the largest protected stretch of mangrove coastline in the Western Hemisphere. There are nearly four million acres of contiguous public conservation lands in the Everglades of South Florida, often quite close to cities like Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers and Naples. Everglades National Park has been declared an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site and a Wetland of International Importance, one of only three locations in the world to appear on all three lists. 📷 @carltonward . . . #Everglades #Mangroves #foreverglades #FloridaWildlifeCorridor
“Toothbrushes give a messages from the sea. Was it ironic that a toothbrush with the word MERMAID caught my attention when I was photographing brushes recovered from oceans around the world? Alongside ‘REACH’? Perhaps implying that a ‘mermaid' could ‘reach' for a toothbrush… which of course she can because the sea is now littered with them. I also noticed brushes with the text ‘BETWEEN' and WISDOM’ on their handles. This made me think that we are, as a race ‘between’ ‘wisdom’ - in that we think we have the experience, knowledge and good judgment that wisdom brings, but actually we don’t, because we created the plastic product and didn’t foresee its impact on the oceans and the planet. So for this message, ‘BETWEEN WISDOM’ implies that within this crisis we can hopefully find solutions to sort out the problem, and perhaps we are not as clever as we thought.” @mandybarkerphotography . . . . #planetincrisis #world #ocean #plasticfree #endoceanplastic #marinedebris #plasticpollutes

Artist @richellegribble “Earth Core,” a tactile sculpture dissecting the levels of the Earth's core using man-made, often discarded material. This piece indicates human impact on Earth made in collaboration with Robert Simmon, @nasa lead data visualizer. He states, “Richelle Gribble‘s art is restless, moving from dioramas painstakingly assembled from found materials, to a sprawling network of miniature painted snapshots, to filaments of spider silk arranged to echo urban streetscapes. Despite the diversity of media, her work maintains a continuity of theme, a sense of place, and a reverence for our home planet.” . . . #nasa #data #bluemarble @planetlabs #earth #allbound #weboflife #textile #sculpture #painting #earthcore #humanimpact #anthropocene
Japanese artists in the 60s were getting into ephemeral, communal, and earth art. An exhibition @japansociety_nyc surveys the “resonances” on both sides of the Pacific and introducing NYC to the radical practices of rurally-based artists and artist collectives in mid-century Japan and is up until June 9th @brooklynrail . . . #earthart #environmentalart #japan
