"In a world uninhabitable to humans and most other creatures, the tardigrades have taken over everything. Even social media! Enjoy their post-apocalyptic paradise shenanigans. #tardicool”
In Shining bright like a diamond #strongerthanyesterday #brighterthanthedarkness #travel, acrylic paint on a 5x5.5-inch acrylic CD case, Ina created a discolored world of polluted waters and skies. This piece is part of a collection of small paintings featuring the tardigrades, a micro-animal known to withstand the harshest of environments; the only survivors in this post-apocalyptic-human-extinction narrative.
The biggest lesson of the pandemic? “If we are to change the language we use to talk about the Earth we have moved beyond labels of feminine and masculine, we need to change how we speak of our survival. When we act, we do not act to save the Earth because the Earth will move on without us. When we act, we act to save humanity and the environment that sustains us."
