Habitat series, ‘Forest Globe’ work-in-progress

I’m on a balancing line with these – a new series of 6 globes, each of a different habitat. Creation is beautiful and good, but also fractured and threatened. I can’t see where the resolution of the image should sit, both in terms of its meaning and its look. What role has sight in this – i.e. does our looking construct the world as we want to see it, or have we given up on utopian ideas about paradise and see things fall apart (Chinua Achebe)? What does recreation mean that’s different to uncreation? Come on theologians, help me out!
