"Thor Heyerdahl was a Norwegian adventurer and ethnographer with a background in zoology, botany, and geography. Heyerdahl is notable for his Kon-Tiki expedition in 1947, in which he sailed 8,000 km across the Pacific Ocean in a handbuilt raft from South America to the Tuamotu Islands." ( Wikipedia) Heyerdahl repeatedly risked his life sailing across the Pacific in a raft, proving Trans-cultural diffusion between ancient peoples was possible. Heyerdahl accomplished this with rudimentary tools, gathered materials, and a few volunteers. Today, from the comfort of a desk chair with computer technology and the internet, ideas and technology-shared between individuals and entire countries should be simple. So, why can't the nations of the world aggressively address the issue of global warming? Recycled materials, woven copper, steel wire, chemical patina, polychrome 18" x 24" x 2".
