I have been part of an ongoing series of climate change visual art shows in Alaska, "In Time of Change", with varying themes. This piece was in ITOC: The Art of Fire. Artists are introduced to scientists and work with them to produce a depth of knowledge for our work.
This quilt depicts bare ground and dead trees after a fire. The intensity of the fire will affect how the area will revegetate. If the fire does not burn too deeply, some plants have roots that will re-grow new plants, and can cover the ground area with one species of plants, where previously there were many.
