At every step we stumble over forms of life flora, fauna, funghi, and others that seem unloved and neglected and appear to be neither beautiful nor useful. They are irritating, tidious, even dangerous or simply spoil the view. But unloved forms of the living animals, plants and others are also those who are simply ignored, excluded from care and attention. They do not spoil the view; they never even get into the focus of attention.

Water and sanitation facts produced by the World Health Organization 2015 state that 1 in 10 people have access to safe water, 1 in 3 people lack access to a toilet – which the World Health Organization states as being the number one global risk impact to society. Along with a world water crisis, media reports a serious condom crisis. In Venezuela’s collapsed economy, condoms are very difficult and expensive to obtain. Condoms in Venezuela are reported as being as high as $755 per pack in the marketplace, creating a concern where people are taking “a chance” in sexual activity and accountability. As a human species, consuming and expelling in an organism-driven world, accountability and “taking a chance” play an important role in our survival. Type your paragraph here.

Ways of understanding Place
This collaboration was structured as an ongoing conversation across art forms,
using text and visual response. Each visual work is a response to a text
provocation. Each piece text after first, responds to the visual piece. Together
we have considered how to communicate, understand and translate notions of place across art forms.
