The artwork Horizon refers to both the line between sky and earth, and an imagining of the future horizon we wish to draw.

The artist was inspired by the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize that was awarded to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and Al Gore for “their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.”

Today the climate crisis associated with the loss of biodiversity is the greatest challenge facing our world. Bird watching reveals the effects of climate change on biodiversity as they have an essential role in the balance of the world’s ecosystems. This artwork is a tribute to birds as nature’s sentinels, as well as one of the world’s most recognizable symbols of peace and freedom.
