Today's Inspiration- Beverly Pepper

by - Sunday, September 14, 2014

Beverly Pepper doesn't often garner my attention, but this week I am thinking about green practices and stewardship. We may not think of monumental earth art as stewardship, but I think this work recontextualizes the world around us in a way that encourages reflection of the effect we make.

So, we saw this piece, Ventaglio (1967), by Pepper at the Olympic Sculpture Park last week. It really is beautiful in person, and the reflective surface pulls us into the frame around the natural world. We can't deny our own responsibility and part in this world.  This week I want to think about the way we live our lives like it is part of this sculpture, and we can't avoid our role as part of the frame.
