Title: How to Change the World in 9 Easy Steps
Size of Print: 16×20″
A signed, numbered print of an original Cut Paper work by Rachel.
The title of this piece is partly in irony, since changing the world is anything but easy and there is no how-to manual for doing so. However, small and sustainable steps are sometimes the most effective in setting into motion larger institutional changes. The boy holds a sphere, wrapping it in string with each successive frame, and in the final one a subtle outline of the continent of Africa emerges. This signifies that part of the long-term solution for humankind is to return to and honor our common origins in Africa, healing the past and building a collectively brighter future together.
As with all art, various interpretations of my images are welcome.
