Points of Contention by Jonathan Latiano

Don’t eat that tuna, you’ll hurt the dolphins!  Cut up your six pack rings, save a seagull. Recycle cans. Drive a hybrid. Do whatever you can to not leave too noticeable a footprint everywhere you tread.

Jonathan Latiano has created a thoughtful sculpture called Points of Contention to encourage us to think twice about the future affects of our world’s use of plastics, styrofoam, and other man made mutant products. The ripple affect in the floor suggests a movement whereas the negative reactions to these inorganic elements becomes our world’s future norm.
He challenges his audience, “As the plastics, resins and polymers that we stockpile on a daily basis increase exponentially, how are we changing the long-term geological landscapes of the world around us?”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
