Repair the World

“Tikkun Olam”, translated as “repair the tear in the world” is an ancient Hebrew phrase that originally had mystical connotations—that the world was created imperfectly and can be fixed only by human activity. Contemporary usage of the phrase shares a concern with public policy and societal change. My “Repair the World” art extends to our urgent global environmental emergency and communicates the need for people to actively participate in Tikkun Olam.

My tool kits for repairing the world are small sculptures (7 x 7 x 5 inches), created with recycled cardboard and painted with acrylics. The stages represent the globe.
