Our theme this year is Allergy, Autoimmunity and Microbiome.
Cover Design by David Longpre
This artist proof of a larger wood block relief print, presents a metaphor for humanity as Earth’s contagion. Similar with this year’s theme of allergy, autoimmunity and microbiome, it is equally imperative to understand how humanity reacts with the biome of the planet, just as small viruses and particles reacts to our own bodies. With a desire for infinite growth, humanity will eventually deplete the remaining resources from our host; we, as a species, must realize this paradox. The print is a small excerpt from a series held in the University of British Columbia Print Resource Collection.
