Artist’s notes:

“A love letter to masculinity and an elegy to a Lakota prophecy, as manifested by the Dakota Access Pipeline and pipelines built across North America. In the prophecy, a black snake rises from the deep, bringing with it great sorrow and great destruction. There is another prophecy spoken of by several nations: the prophecy of the Seventh Generation, which foretells a time when young people will lead an uprising, joining with other peoples to defend land and sustainability and allow humans to continue living on the earth.” - V.C.
