ARTIST STATEMENT

The Ocean is the heart of the Earth. It flows over nearly three-quarters of our planet, and holds 97% of the water. It produces 70% of the oxygen in the atmosphere (rainforests are only responsible for 28%) and absorbs the most carbon from it. Arthur C. Clarke correctly observed: "How inappropriate to call this planet Earth, when clearly it is Ocean."

I grew up in the Moldavian plateau, in a city surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Growing up the sea was something distant and exotic, strictly associated with summer vacation. It was only when I moved by the Pacific Ocean and suffered the direct consequences of my mundane choices (where I buy my clothes, how much plastic I use, how much I re-use, etc) that I started to comprehend the importance and fragility of the oceans. 

Even though the ocean is out of sight, as I breathe the Utah air I keep in mind that no matter how far we live from the sea, from every ten breaths we take seven come from the ocean. No matter where we are, what we do impacts the ocean and the ocean responds in the same manner we address it. This small collection of seascapes remind me not to forget.

About the library

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
