“Through a multi-year series of corporal kinetic work, the cyclic nature of time, prophecy and policy is illustrated through a brief glimpse into a possible future world where indigenous knowledge forms the basis of governance, economy and interpersonal integrity; clearly reflecting the present while remaining rooted in rhythms and wisdom of the past. I feel an increasing responsibility to adapt patterns and structures to reflect the intensity of messaging needed to spark transformative self-awareness. Collectively and individually, we must activate our responsibility to create a future where everything we need is attainable and our work takes care of each other and the earth. Golden Promise – a #PapalotlProject production – was a street level community art+science  interaction at Mola Avenue and the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale as part of Sea Level Solutions and Global Day of Climate Action organized by MicroGalleries and Florida International University. “
