Abstract Orange: "’EARTH’, the latest work by Lauren Emeritz, uses Cyanotypes and Letterpress-printed text on BFK Rives to express a message from the Earth to the humans who inhabit it. The foreboding message creates urgency around climate change and its impact on humans. The book structure is a drum leaf binding allowing the images to fill the spreads. The BFK paper with torn edges and exposed book board cover creates an elegant but raw feeling. The artist created the cyanotype images using natural elements, plastic, and UV light. "
Although my climate is changing I am not worried
I will survive
You will battle for resources
Or drown or Freeze or Starve
