Forest & Bird protect all of New Zealand’s native species and wild places, but they receive no government funding. To continue doing the work they do, they desperately needed new members and the cheapest membership option is $5 a month. With that in mind, we wanted people to discover for themselves how a mere $5 could make a huge difference – it can help put a bird back in its natural environment. The concept was well received and then extended to $10 and $50.
Andrew Tirado Pays Homage to Craftsmanship with His Monumental Hand Sculptures
It’s a palpable wonder, the manual effort that Colorado artist Andrew Tirado puts into his sculptures. It’s no coincidence, either, that his subject is hands. He commemorates things that are man-made. He does so by showing the importance of craft. The further we go along in virtual realities, the less significant we find the hands. The human touch, that’s what he wants to preserve.
