Apology to a Planet

Doug Cannell's avatar Doug Cannell

Like many people, I am very concerned about the way we treat our environment. I have found it very easy to put the blame on corporations, politicians and countries. But I BUY THE PRODUCTS our factories make. I VOTE for those politicians. I PAY TAXES to those municipalities. And even though I try to avoid them, my typical day is filled with activities that negatively affect the health of our planet. I am complicit in this disaster. This sculpture is my personal apology. - Doug Cannell
