Harnessing Fire
"Fire is Man's Singularly Most Useful Tool:
With it he has forged his most wistful thoughts into incredible realities."
Dudley Giberson: Storrs Murrini Window, 1982
Nature's Forge
In our time this ancient catastrophe is being played out to the effect that survival can depend on how nimble we are to step aside and hope it will not take lives or our homes. The bigger ideas of control are elusive. How do you stop the West from burning? Or the Amazon Forest? In this image are the thoughts of man being God himself. Here is the unusual thing: Some people will see the burning tree and run away while some will run to it to see if they can save a burning branch and do something special with it.
