Description: Horrified by Burtynsky’s images in his book Anthropocene, I can’t help but think, “what have we done to the planet?” Concerned and upset by ongoing climate change, I chose to sculpt a hopeful image. Sculpted from a freshly cut block – hence deep cracks – the spherical shape, much like our planet, shows sign of growth from the craters of an anthropological damaged core.
