Polymathic | Lungs of the Earth

Happy 2019, friends. This year, instead of New Year’s Resolutions, I’m starting a 2019 Happiness Project, inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s book and her podcast, Happier.

One thing that fills me with great joy, unfailingly, is creating. It doesn’t matter if it is hand-made, digital, photography, for work or for play, creating anything with a high level of craft leaves me gleeful and self-satisfied. In that vein, today I’m sharing with you an ink and watercolor series I produced for the AIAS (American Institute of Architect Students) Student Fundraiser last year. Art + outreach = altruistic delight.

Environmental stewardship is one of our core responsibilities as we design the built environment. Inspired by The Earth Has Lungs, Watch Them Breathe, this tryptic represents the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, maintaining balance at the micro, human, and macro scale.
Every leaf contains many thousands of breathing tubes to facilitate the exchange of O2 and CO2.
The carbon you exhale becomes the bulk of the tree as it grows.
The world’s forrests collectively inhale and exhale, creating a global exchange between plant life, industries, and ourselves.

Cherish our one earth.
