I Think That the Root of the Wind is Water
About this piece:
This Dickinson poem speaks to the inherent interconnection of environmental elements. Today, as our planet experiences increasing climate instability, Dickinson’s message is a relevant reminder to honor and protect our environment. My soft edged pop-up abstractions are meant to create a visual experience that compliments Dickinson’s tone of reverence and wonder.
