Heart-piercing

The Time Warner Center in NYC is hosting an art exhibition, sponsored by LaMer skincare. It focuses, appropriately enough, on the Earth’s oceans and the abuse they’re suffering as a result of pollution and climate change.

I found this piece particularly moving in its depiction of the oceans’ waves, as the heart of our beloved Planet, punctured by human carelessness.

As stewards of this beautiful rock we call home, we can do better.

  1. Very interesting. What’s even more interesting is the personification of the planet — I wonder if this speaks more to the anthropocentrism of humans than it does for the human capacity of generosity. It makes me wonder, do we only care about things if they’re like us? I want to envision a world where we value difference, too. Great piece — very thought-provoking!
