I am a bit weary about anything that suggests a percentage of profits being donated.
I immediately fell in love with this piece. Amazing not only in that it was started months before tragedy struck Japan but that the artist is donating all profits to relief and that it is a limited edition thus maintaining the value of the art work.
100% of profits from the sale of this print titled: Techno Wave will go towards supporting Tsunami Relief-
All the money will go to Action Against Hunger an organization presently helping feed and evacuate the at risk populations in Japan.
From the Artist, Nick D'attomo:
I think it's important to recognize that the tragedy in Japan is not as far away as the distance would have us believe. California has earthquakes, California has a coastline, and California has nuclear power plants.This is an image I've been working on for a couple of months now. The original intent was to draw similarities between wave of industry that washed over Japan of the nineteenth century, and technological wave that is washing over the U.S. The images of destruction coming out of the Japan place this image within a completely new context.All of the industrial and technological advancements that have been made over the course of human history can easily be washed away by a simple shiver of the planet. We are frail creatures who are subject to the whims of mother nature, we don't own the planet, it owns us.
