#repost @susanrockefeller ▶️ Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into the ocean. 8 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year! By 2050, there may be more plastic than fish in our ocean by weight.
As a board member of Oceana and an advisor to Oceanic Global, I believe we need everyone at the table to play their part. I’m proud to be a part of Oceana’s policy-driven and campaign-based work, as well as Oceanic Global’s grass roots engagement initiatives, targeting a millennial audience. Oceanic Global launched the Oceanic Standard a little over two weeks ago to provide the hospitality industry with sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics. In honor of Earth Day, they’ve launched the Festival & Nightlife Edition, making it easy for bars, restaurants, concerts, festivals, and events to break free from plastics. Visit @oceanic.global or go to the Living Blue section of the Oceana Website to read the standard and see what you can to do get involved.
My painting entitled ‘Ocean Rainforest’ featuring coral reefs and sea turtles was a winner of the Oceanic Global Artivism Challenge which utilised the visual arts to raise awareness about six critical issues impacting our ocean. The judges included Susan Rockefeller, Dustin Yellin, Aaron Levi Garvey, Doumi Busturia, Alexandre Arrechea and Zaria Forman. Prints of the winning works are available via @alphaainc and I'm very happy to be able to play a small part to support the important work of Oceanic Global.
The ghostly female figure representing the source of water is an allegorical reminder that our future is inherently bound up with our treatment of the earth’s natural resources. The critically endangered Hawksbill Turtle, which is less migratory and more reef-associated, is painted in black and white and the monochromatic panels highlight potential irreversible loss. This message is given further emphasis in the crystal mosaic cross on the face of the principal animal, which at once highlights its preciousness and draws attention to its fate.
Congratulations @nassergdayeh and @heyd29
Wish you both the best as you welcome Sky Rose to this world albeit at the cost of your sleep.
Today was an amazing celebration at which the venue was a perfectly executed play on your soon to be new born's name.
I recommend highly, to anyone with an interest in Christian and Medieval allegory, to read Langland's Piers the Plowman. Amongst the likes of Dante and Chaucer, and the later works of Milton, it is often overlooked, but it is one of those works that has stuck with me. Even as far as allegories go, it can be a but difficult to dig through, but it is a fascinating work, and well worth the effort. Many scholars consider it one of the finest works of allegorical poetry. I agree.
I may very well be a medievalist at heart ❤️(With some French Renaissance thrown in.) Probably something to do with the fact that I studied Chaucer and Langland in middle school instead of your typical 7th grade literature lol
Day 111: Market Of Fleas.
50% garage sale of antiques. 20% natural/vegan foods. 30% everything else. Those are the ingredients necessary for a flea market at the beginning of spring. Going it alone, this event didn't take as long as expected to get through, and it didn't really excite (but was sometimes inspirational). The busy movement and constant flow of people was almost an allegory for fleas. However, there was a lot of time spent outdoors in the nice day that made this journey better than the destination. #fleamarket#613flea#fleas#allegory#inspiration#thejourney#itsbettertoatleastcheckitoutthantonotandalwayswonder
