Mythology Unraveling

36" wide x 45" tall x 8" deep

Found tire rubber fragments, plywood, screws. Facing global warming, overpopulation, increasing pollution, food shortages and the coming end of oil and gas reserves, I believe humanity must face the fact that our consumer ideology must change for us to survive as a species. To me, our collective belief that excessive consumption will deliver us to the Promised Land of fulfillment is beginning to come apart. Isn't it up to us to discover a new belief system that leads us in finding ways to work with the powers of nature for our survival?
