I made this piece in the hopes of inspiring other humans. In a lifetime, one human uses so much paper and electric power. But we also waste so much paper and power.

I made this piece in the hopes of inspiring other humans. In a lifetime, one human uses so much paper and electric power. But we also waste so much paper and power. So much of our history has been lost because we haven’t spent enough of that paper or power writing down and recording what we need to know about the real ways of our history. We’ve gone from telegrams to radio to television to the ways of technology and computers and we still don’t understand the truth. The weight is on us, as humans, and the pallet represents us.
