Humans need nature to survive. The modern world is becoming more and more removed from nature. Overlooking the importance of nature, as we go about our busy lives, makes it easier for it to disappear right in front of our eyes. This series was was created as a reminder that all humans are part of nature and children of Mother Earth. By protecting our planet's resources, along with the ecosystems that are our home, we are in essence, protecting ourselves.

Which world would you rather live in?

The viewer is invited to peer inside 2 black, half spheres containing 2 different scenarios. The first illuminated world shows a luscious, green, thriving version of our earth where humans are living in harmony with the natural world. The second contains an inhospitable version of our earth after it has been stripped of its natural resources by an army of greedy, destructive men in suits.
