COMMEMORATING AFFLICTED PLACES 

ISLAND VIEW MEDIA

Bob Chianese advocates respect for disturbed environments that are in various states of disrepair and ecological transformation and our efforts both to repair and adapt to them.

 

The information offered here reminds us of our ongoing intrusions, the impacts of human-caused climate change and promotes a new form of beauty--the beauty of our changing and afflicted planet as well as actions by environmentalists, artists, and others to heal it.
