Arctic Beginnings

Anna Taugher

Entrance in to the New Year a thaw is beginning in Colorado. Within this thaw is the anticipation of new beginnings. With each Earth turn a blank slate is created in my mind and in that the mindfulness in whats to come.

Where I find the greatest inspiration, the greatest rejuvenation, are the stark landscapes that reflect the blank spaces of the mind. I find myself lusting to wander within these ecosystems where others may think that nothing exists and finding hope in a the little intricacies of life that are created there. I am constantly mystified by the adaptation, the ingeniousness of nature, that creates life and beauty out of these marginal lands.

Australian artists Brooke Holm explored the northern most landscape in her exhibition 'Arctic.' In this series she captured the fragile and calm serenity that calls the arctic home. Holm shows this untouched oasis on film, yet though untouched it it evolving. With this series she hopes to raise awareness of to the arctic, of the mysteries in its existance we have yet to discover and of the changing climate and the impact on these lands.

I could get lost looking at these photos for hours, exploring all the details. Where there is nothing, anything is possible. 

Continued Life

Anna Taugher

Beginning in 2004 artist Rachel Sussman has set out on a journey across the world to photograph the oldest living things. A collaborative effort between artist and biologists, Sussman has braved some of the harshest climates and scoured every inch of the Earth to document life. The plant life she captures is measured on a scale of millennia and despite this lifespan it is now threatened. Climate change and disappearing ecosystems constricts the life of these ancient giants into threatened status. Not knowing the natural lifespan of these organisms, Sussman attempts to document their life before termination is chosen for them. Part artist, part record keeper I admire Sussman's work as a noble goal that is imperative to our understanding of this Earth, it's functions, and our place within it. 


The Museum of Water

Anna Taugher

Water is life, and in Amy Sharrocks latest installation she created a pop up museum dedicated to water. Sharrocks has collected donations over the last two years from different water sources, everything from melted snow and hail to left over water from watercolor paints, and put the vessels that hold this sacred liquid on display. This installation is set to comment on the effects of climate change on water. How are our actions effecting water sources around the world?  Where is water hiding within your daily life?
