Using a visual image of the power of wind on my body canvas as a metaphor for the effects on the world’s surface and the ever increasing intensity of the storms our planet is subjected as a possible result of global warming, which ultimately has an effect on our own lives and health. The reckless destruction of forests and habitats makes the possibility of erosion far more likely, and with the strength and force of the changing weather across the planet, erosion has become a serious issue for mankind.
