“We are concerned here with AN ACT OF HUMANITY with the maintaining of cultural values and not least with a measure of considerable political importance. The effect upon all nations…of the fate of these innocent people so maliciously persecuted must not be underestimated. To leave these victims to their misery would be a heavy blow to all those who believe in human solidarity and would enclourage those who believe only in force and oppression and who act accordingly”
-Albert Einstein; on the persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany.
The Magical World of Living Light
This is the mysterious spectacle of bioluminescence. Its hard not to revel in the beauty of this remarkable natural phenomenon. These glowing creatures are primarily a product of the ocean. They are the primary source of light in the largest and darkest area of habitable land on Earth, the deep sea. On land, they are most commonly seen as glowing fungus on wood (foxfire) or in the few families of luminous insects (fireflies).
This is the piece I did for “Speaking in Tongues II” opening on June 7th. This show is curated by Buddy Nestor and the line up is so rad! Thrilled to be a part of it. If you are in Philadelphia in June I hope you will check out the show!
