As an artist, my work focuses on Historical themes and thus, few people know how important environmentalism and climate change issues are to me. I feel society places responsibility on Institutions, Companies and Governments to make large scale policy changes... and for us to wait for them to do so.
I believe we have power. Our decisions, our lifestyles and our habits influence our world. Companies and Governments may have the power of policy and law, but we have the power of numbers. While Institutions, Companies and Governments go through the motions, I'm making changes.
Minor Alterations is a way for me to share these changes, whether they be newly adopted or already an established part of my life. New Postcards will be available each month on Instagram @thomson.ht and this webpage.
Minor Alterations became an installation in 2020 at Shell Park, 3307 Lakeshore Rd West, Oakville, ON. More information about Minor Alterations: Oakville can be found here.
