WK7 - oil and water

Oil and water 

Thinking about the athropocean, the future ruin. I can’t stop reading articles about plastic pollution, global warming, rising sea levels, destruction of the environment. All of this is at the forefront of my mind, and I don’t know how to work around it. I think I must work through it. This work isn't intended to be political / environmental however. I don't intend to be explicit in these themes, but I'm finding it hard to ignore also. 

The cycle of things, how do we know where we are in the cycle? is there a cycle? 

Thinking about what it means to manipulate water in modern ways - to freeze water is to manipulate water. Like English settlers manipulated the land and the river in order to bend nature to their will. The freezing of water if a demonstration of how we might force nature into something it doesn’t want to do.
