minor graphical alterations for this version 2.
notes:
part of 'greenwise' series illustratrating evolutionary forces or interactions.
Elements include: symbol for growth in the centre, turning sails of death influencing the forms and flame of life, tributes to Charles Darwin's 'Origin of Species' including his original outlines of the 'tree of life', the mandlebrot fractal symbol, personal symbols highlighting the need for greater awareness, and of our interconnection with other species...

'Evolution' forces change but only where the outer ring (our environment) changes. It can also force species to devolve and lose characteristics previously favored. Evolution in this way is also merciless as it is inexorable. Our basic existence is part of process: to burn up and reproduce energy, to nourish the earth and continue life's ripple in an ocean of time. Living and dying, weak and strong all play their part in shaping the next generation. Is this meaning? It just is.

Evolution and change also changes our language, culture, behavior, genetics... we have 'succeeded' you might say as a species, by communication and collaboration, by managing resources, and controlling other species. But by shifting between habitats have we yet found a sustainable harmony with the alternatives? And despite space exploration we will forever be dependent on the health of our home planet. If its balance is set to change, then so will we... drawn towards and powered each of us by the light of the sun.

image also contains lines from 'drinking song' by Thomas Hardy:
'We are all one with creeping things;
And apes and men
Blood-brethren. '

Hi, just a note to mention updated version of ''Greenwise' Art Symbols' is added now to my store, and the old, previous one is removed, and will be 'burnt'.
