The artist book, LET’S TAKE CARE OF BIODIVERSITY, arose out of the anguish I felt from the devastating Córdoba, Argentina and California, USA forest fires in 2020.
This artist’s book became a reality through the help of translations by bilingual friends, and then, as the project grew, even more translation help from multilingual friends of friends from around the world. The many translators were of different ages, sexes, races, beliefs, and cultures, and included some professional translators.
LET’S TAKE CARE OF BIODIVERSITY is an open edition artist’s book. As an open edition, you can print and spiral bind it, download and save it on your computer, cell phone or tablet. You can also share this book, and please include this message, with whomever you wish.
This artist’s book is a seed and my hope is that caring for biodiversity will germinate and take root in our minds.
