Art Loop Open: Block 37 [I Would Like My Life Back, Says the Planet - by Mary Mihelic]
I Would Like My Life Back, Says The Planet..
By Mary Mihelic..
Art Loop Open: Block 37..
THis artwork is a reaction to BP's Tony Hayward's statement, "I would like my life back". Only my installation puts the words in the mouth of the planet's by reading, "I would like my life back says the planet. The letters are made of flowers, weeds and ivy.. and appears to be growing from the cracks of the floor. If you look closely, you will see that the plants form words.
The artwork asks all of us to examine how we are living at the expense of the planet..
Here's Mary Mihelic with her mother.. I wish I knew her name.
