Mosaic Patterns: Celebrating Climate in Pieces

The mosaics in Julie Sperling’s “Fiddling while Rome burns” series each tackle a different trend or concept, from rising temperatures to changing precipitation trends to the difference between weather and climate. Her artistic statement has the flair to persuade literal as well as global warnings to the heaps, improving an individual’s sense of commitment in the communal sense. The artist has been recently engaged in an ongoing series about climate change, titled Fiddling While Rome Burns. Her mosaics tackle specific climate-correlated concepts, impact or solution. Her concepts usually embark upon scientific, literary and political matters. There’s a different apparition for each of her mosaic patterns.Hence, she conveys her ideas and messages using a huge variety of mediums, each one carefully selected to create unique and theoretical patterns. While she does her best in her personal life, at work she often feels like her hands are tied. Such is the reality of being a small gear in the greater engine of federal bureaucracy.

As reported by Sperling, mosaic is a powerful medium to converse climate change, not only because of its germaneness, but also the manifested analogous between the art form and global climate change. Both require a lot of endurance through the gradual processes, but each one depends on the power of the cluster. Pieces of stones and glass come together to create images with an assemblage of pieces, accordingly our actions add up and make a difference in the fight against climate change.
