Repair

Tikkun Olam Tool Kits

“Tikkun Olam”, translated as “repair the tear in the world” is an ancient Hebrew phrase. Originally, it had mystical connotations that the world was created imperfectly to be fixed only by human endeavor. Contemporary usage of the phrase shares a concern with public policy and societal change extending to urgent global environmental emergency. My small “Tikkun Olam” tool kits represent the globe for we are all in this together and by creating community, we begin to solve our myriad of crises.

Nesting represents primary sanctuary of all living organisms expressed as bird-like creatures.

Recycled rattan baskets, driftwood, wood, leather, acrylic paint.

I Am the Reef

I Am the Reef
Born in the same brine
where all life would surge,
my bones will scatter, too soon,
on your bleached coral bed.
The same sun melts my heart
and yours in the furious flame
lit by the match of
the insatiable human species.
