“I’d like my viewer to consider how much potential power we have with familial wisdom, gathered mythologies, altruistic philosophies, science, and technology. Why have we not already turned the tide of planetary destruction? The time is running out; we must move forward even if we must first recant our actions and go backward. Greed and avarice, power for the few, and survival of the moneyed must stop. We must collect ourselves and restore what we can of our beautiful planet.”- Alison Barrows-Young (ALBY)
