Napoleon Brousseau “collect me” for New York Art show,

Napoleon Brousseau  and the Seed collective.net  www.seedcollective.net

Something I came across called ARTISTS WANTED, do you know about this?

check it out.

http://napoleonbrousseau.artistswanted.org/atts2012 – COLLECT ME

so you get to “Collect”  your favourite artists work. They are entered into a jury by popularity and the prize is your work shown in Times Square. sounds like fun!

GO and press “COLLECT  ME” for Napoelon  BROUSSEAU’S WORK, and I’ll tell you why, its not just that this is a brilliant art work. His work is not about vanity.  You get to collaborate and co-create  with this art . By using your cell phone you get to grow a virtual seedling into a very very artistic tree; there’s a Meat tree, an Ancestor Tree, etc.  with his art piece http://www.seedcollective.net  shown above. You get to download the image of the tree you created. But the best part, the icing on the cake, or tree in this case,  is that your interraction is  funded by various company’s to plant real trees.

Napoleon  already envisioned the Times square showing years ago, hence the photoshopped  pic.

So a vote for Napeoleon’s dream coming true ni Times square is a vote for you making your own dreams come true.

Do you have a vision board or a dream board? What goes around comes around.

How the heck do artists’ think of these things?

More about Napoleon.Yes that’s his real name, { very common French Canadian name from Quebec }  Napoleon’s  seed collective is an  art installation that plants trees. Yes and it has done so in China, Australia, New Orleans, Baltimore, Vermont, Toronto Canada and at the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver. and is headed to London and Paris in the near future.

The seedcollective was Napoleon’s brainchild sprouting from a seed of a former New Media project from 2001. Napoleon and his colleagues created the first cel phone driven art interface ever in the world, at the Canadian Film Center in Toronto at the Bell New Media  Lab, that prototype, called SWAMP was shown at Siggraph in Los Angeles in 2001. In 2005 the seedcollective was premiered at the SCOPE Art fair in New York.

Seventh Generation, the long-standing eco company from Vermont, backed Napoleon to help fund Replant New Orleans in 2006 using the seedcollective as the vehicle.  Seedcollective was a web enabled cel phone interactive interface at the time, also a world’s first. Hundreds of trees were planted in New Orleans as a result of users interactions with seed.

Seedcollective.net is currently being shown since January – April 22 Earth Day at the McMichael Art Gallery, in Kleinburg, Ontario, outside of Toronto. The McMichael is the home of the Group of Seven Canadian art collection,which recently toured  London England, seee review here

Mother’s Day give the EARTH OUR MOTHER your prayers by Tara Greene

This Mother’s Day,

GIVE YOUR HEALING PRAYERS to MOTHER EARTH 

This is the most important thing YOU can give to ALL the MOTHERS  

Your loving intentions,  & innate healing powers,  

MAKES A GREAT GIFT!  

makes a great Gift for Mothers DAy

Your Healing prayers for Our Mother the EARTH on MOTHER'S DAY

 

Your Prayers and Intentions for the Healing and rebalancing  

Of OUR MOTHER the EARTH  

Are precious and most necessary gifts    

Because the Oil spill in the Gulf of Louisiana is dire

And all the places on Her that are ravaged because of man made   

Wars, corporate food growing, mining, industry, housing,   

We, as Mothers, and All her children, must do everything in our power   

NOW to Heal Mother EARTH with Positive Changes, Choices,  

Create Beauty, Peace, and Wholeness for All her Children,  

 You can help bring balance back to MOTHER Nature  

 MOTHER’S DAY is a wonderful Day to honour our Mothers, who gave us this precious gift of Life itself.  Please do Honour your mother. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the flowers, the dinner, your kind thoughts and energy.  

Let’s expand Mothers Day, to Honour everyone’s Mother-  

The EARTH Herself and offer her the same love, kindness and care as we do to our own Mothers.  

 Indigenous peoples have always honoured the Earth as the mother of us all. She is and always was revered and respected. The indigenous peoples feel it is their sacred duty to watch over, care and administer to Her needs, to uphold her Natural Laws. It is an undisputable fact that we All live on Her. The Earth IS our mother.  NOTRE DAME.  The Earth, Herself, is Our One common Mother, regardless of religion, race, colour or gender.  

 If we look at the news this Mothers Day we can’t help but be alarmed at the persistent and worsening environmental disasters going on everywhere around the world.  

I believe that these natural and man-made environmental disasters are quickening their pace and worsening in order to wake us up! If we were having a bad dream, we would surely wake ourselves up from fear of facing IT.  

I find it strange that in our “waking life” we seem to remain deeply asleep, when life-threatening danger is us all around us, in everything we encounter!  

 Please look deeply into your heart and ask yourself if the Great mother, the Earth needs your prayers and love right now. Stop and get quiet, take a deep breath and send your consciousness down into your heart and resonate that question. Listen for the true answer…  

 The Earth Mother really needs us to wake up from our waking sleep and change, radically how we have been living, our supposed dominance over the earth will decimate all of us and if we don’t stop and change now.   

Tsunamis, volcanoes, flooding, drought. I know in my heart that men and women have created these imbalance, pollution, waste, species extinction by living out of balance with Nature. We need to live in ways that do not harm the Earth or any of her children. This nightmare of a way of life is not life giving, nurturing. Our postmodern Western culture is insane and brutal; it’s really a nightmare, a bad dream for the Earth Herself. Look what we’ve done to our Mother.  

The way we’ve hurt and abused our Mother. We are our mother, we are the Earth. Let’s admit the truth, it’s suicidal.  

 “Mother Earth is Our baby, she is sick and in trouble Mother Earth is our baby, our own Mother Earth is our Baby, our own. “ – Lyrics to WOMEN by Nancy Ward  

 I had written on May Day recently about toppling the Male model of power over represented by the May Pole because of the oil spill in the Gulf. See my blog  https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2010/05/  

 Then this came to me as an email from novelist, teacher, lecturer, activist, Elder and healer Deena Metzger.

We cannot know the consequences of the Gulf Hemmorrhage. We can see the gravity….. Things Fall Apart (from Truthout).  We know something of the ways illness can be transformed to sacred illness and invite miracles. When we offer up everything, and change our lives systemically on behalf of the future of all beings, unimagined possibilities occur…. This is the moment.   
A Call to Live Your Medicine Now  on Behalf of the EarthSeaMother Gather your medicines, the EarthSeaMother says, the ones I gave you to meet whatever pain and anguish might come to you in your lives.  Gather your medicines, bring out your medicine bundles and live from them, live them, now.  You always wondered when the time might be that you could not deny the urgency that insists you walk your medicine ways.  The time is now. What life emerges directly out of the wisdom you gathered as you gathered your medicine bundle, your spiritual practices, your prayers?  

About the suffering Gulf and the great, gushing wound of the EarthSeaMother…   

When praying for healing, a miracle requires rigorous alignment with what serves all beings, making offerings to the future equal to the gravity of the situation, making amends, atoning, transforming, holding nothing back.   

 
When hoping for healing of a critical illness, the patient, the patient’s family and community and the healers make the systemic offerings that align them with Spirit on behalf of the future of the patient and the future of all beings.  Everyone scrutinizes herself/himself to see how we may have contributed to the agony and changes behavior immediately.  Healing, to be true healing, must be goodness for all beings.   

 
The EarthSeaMother made the ultimate offering to nurture us no matter what. The  EarthSeaMother and her offering were one.  Now we have wounded her so gravely she may no longer be capable of sustaining her little ones, the ones who live their lives within her, or alongside her. She may no longer be capable of sustaining us.  Can we take on this task, on her behalf, of nurturing all these beings, all beings, truly?  Can we transform our lives so that this call is at the core?  Can we offer this on behalf of the miracle of healing that is so desperately needed?
The EarthSeaMother calls out to us for such offerings.   

What is in your medicine bundle?  What are your healing and spiritual practices?  What daily, moment by moment life is implied by these healing prayer medicines?  Will you offer and live your medicine now, ceaselessly?  When you gather with others, will you see what medicines you carry together and offer them fully?   

 
Healing activity of the magnitude required – equal to the magnitude of the tragedy – needs to be systemic, ongoing and constant, as is the suffering and wound of the EarthSeaMother and all the creatures.  Can you align each moment of your life to the medicine life?  Prayer extends from the exact and rigorous practice of such offerings,.  If we can heal life – that is, heal the EarthSeaMother – then Life may heal us.    

***I had the following dream in May 2009, overwhelmed by grief after seeing photos of desert elephants dying of thirst. I remembered such grief from a pilgrimage to the Death Camps of Central Europe. Pained beyond language, I prayed for a dream that would show us a path out of the horror we have created.  I prayed for a dream that might show the way to restoration.  I prayed for a dream though I have never, as I recall, ever received a dream in answer to such a request.  I sent out the dream at that time and now, alas, it is time to send it out again.  
***This is the dream that came at 8:45 on May 25, 2009:I have put out a call to gather those who carry sacred, ritual  and magical powers. People are coming together in a rectangular room that will allow each of us enough space to sit in an ellipse.
There is a little clutch of women activists at one end of the room. They have been doing political work together for years. They gather in conversation in a tight circle that feels familiar, if exclusive.
One of the women asks me if this is the way I imagined our sitting together. It is not. She asks me if I have a microphone.  Yes, I can get one, I answer, although convinced that passing a microphone will interfere with the ambiance we are called to create.  If we don’t use a microphone, we will have to listen deeply and project our voices to be certain that everyone hears.  Without a microphone, the conversations will be more intimate and spontaneous.
We are failing to gather in the way that meets the call.  We are losing the energy of what we might accomplish, of what promises a new sensibility necessary for this time.  I had imagined we would  devote ourselves to supporting radical activism on behalf of healing the earth, peacebuilding and restoration. The thesis of the gathering is that an alliance of political, spiritual and ritual activity has the best chance of success.  [Such collaboration between Native American elders, medicine people and younger Native American activists has recently been successful after years of failure.]
I am rehearsing the words that I will speak to inspire the participants. This is a call for on-going ritual and ceremonial work in support of more pragmatic social, political and environmental activities. It is also a call to live according to absolute integrity.  In the dream, I am thinking of the planetary consequences of violence, brutality, and greed.  I am anguished by the plight of the elephants, polar bears, whales, wolves, of the pollution of the earth, the air and the waters, of global warming and its consequences. 
In order to please the women who want the microphone, though they are insisting on the old political school through which they have attained a modicum of power and influence, I set off at a run down the steep streets to First Street for the microphone.  But the street is further away than I remember and I soon recognize that it will take too long to retrieve it.  I turn around and return with the intent of realizing the original vision, which is different from how we normally do things and so derives new content, new possibility from its new form.  
When I return I try to begin our meeting, but everyone is distracted and I don’t know how to gather them together.  A younger, dark skinned woman with dark hair lying on a low couch or mattress, raises herself on her forearms and begins singing a chant in a foreign language. The young woman’s voice is deep and resonant and the song gathers us to attention and creates the field in which our mandate – for it is a mandate – can be articulated and healing realized.  

 
As I write the dream, I am aware that this call is not a suggestion but is spiritual instruction that can help accomplish our deepest hopes for the future IF we make these activities the very core of our daily lives and live accordingly and with integrity.  This is the labor that calls to each of us even as it entirely transforms and refocuses our definition of work.  

It is not that we are called to do this work together in a group but that we are each, in the way we are trained, called to it as our primary activity while the same is true for everyone else: each of us devoted and alongside each other and the suffering creatures.  We are asked to focus, do ritual work and live our lives with integrity to bring ease and healing to a suffering world.

So on Mothers day take time out and stand on this Beautiful Earth blossoming, greening, bestowing the scents of lilacs, the chirrups of the robin, the glorious sunshine or necessary rains. Feel the Beauty that Your Mother offers you always.  

Plant your feet in the Earth and send your heat energy your prayers, your intentions to heal and rebalance mother Earth. And vow to take action to change the way you do everything, from letting the water run, to idling your car, to eating meat, to cleaning up garbage, to railing at the government, to downsizing the amount of clothing, perfumes, Plastics, packaged foods, we waste as an act of love and support for the Earth. When each one of us does this, the Earth’s load gets lighter. But it needs constant vigilance, a change of lifestyle. We need to get primitive, tribal, slow, small, and local, green and caring. We must Honour OUR MOTHER and Ourselves.
