MISSION TO PLANT TREES IN THE AMAZON

INSPIRING POSITIVE CHANGE AND A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

IT’S TIME TO PLANT A SEED IN THE GARDEN OF THE UNIVERSE

What is happening in the Amazon is unnatural and most certainly out of control. There have been an extreme amount of fires burning in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. You can help by planting trees in the Amazon.

PLANT A TREE TO GET A CHANCE TO WIN AN ART PRINT ON MUSEUM GRADE RECYCLED PAPER

The more you plant, the higher your chances of winning a free print. For every 1000 trees planted, you will automatically receive a free print.

As a thanks to YOU for planting trees, Lauren Baker wishes to give you the chance to win very special Limited Edition print on museum grade recycled paper. 

The Amazon Infinity Initiative print draw is pulled on the 1st of every month starting from 1 Oct 2019. Good luck and happy planting!

    WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?

    Aug 23 19

    Right now the Amazon urgently needs replantation, more than anywhere else in the world.
    Reforestation is the foundation of restoring ecosystems. It is absolutely not the same as conserving an existing forest. However, in cases where the forest has been damaged and seed-bearing trees may be too far or nonexistent, reforestation is the first and most vital step for returning natural systems and food chains to balance. Our reforestation projects will be spread out over different locations in the Amazon Rainforest over the coming months and years.

    It will be a number of years before we can plant directly in the burn scars of these ongoing fires, but there are other areas in the Amazon that are ready for planting right now. In particular, the Amazon project in Peru is primed and ready to go.

    Planting trees is the most effective way you can get involved in saving our precious Amazon rainforest and the animals who live within it, as well as supporting Indigenous communities, and helping to protect our climate.

    
Every tree makes a huge impact.

    AN OPEN DIALOGUE WITH NATURE - Installation @ Saatchi Art's The Other Art Fair: 3-6 Oct 2019

    Sep 24 19

    Lauren Baker presents a large-scale, multi-sensory installation. A three and half metre white ethereal tree sculpture is the centre piece for ripples of light frequencies to ricochet. The light installation is woven with the smells and sounds of the Amazon, taking over the fairs entrance. Lauren is an MTArt Agency artist and her projects support reforestation of the Amazon rainforest. 


    The project is titled “An Open Dialogue with Nature” and depicts the sound waves of her voice reading “A Letter to Mother Earth,” an apology letter to nature for the last 100 years of destruction and neglect on behalf of the human race, projected onto the tree structure. As the light frequency sound waves reach the end of the branches, you hear sounds from the Amazon (such as tropical thunder storms, windy trees, bird and animal noises) echoing back an expression from nature being receptive to our apology. A card reader in the installation takes tap payments enabling people to easily contribute to plant trees in the Amazon via One Tree Planted charity.

    Lauren would love to gift you a free ticket to the installation and art fair, get the code at: https://www.laurenbakerart.com/exhibition/the-other-art-fair/
    This installation is kindly supported by MT ArtAgency and The Other Art Fair.

    WHY IS THE AMAZON ON FIRE AND WHAT IMPACT DOES THIS HAVE?

    Aug 23 19

    Changes in the political environment in South America have left the Amazon open for higher rates of deforestation. This year alone, more of the Amazon in Brazil has been burned than the previous three years combined. Industries and farmers have received an explicit go-ahead to fell as much forest as required to grow their businesses. Usually the primary method of doing so is by starting a controlled fire that quickly clears the land of any vegetation. However, this is a risky practice and the fires often get out of hand and spread, causing the devastation we are seeing today.
    The loss of the Amazon forest coverage is tragic on many levels. Firstly, the Amazon is a critically significant ecosystem for global biodiversity. More species of plants and animals can be found in the Amazon than anywhere else on Earth. Studies have shown that an area smaller than half a football field could support 1,100 tree species alone!

    Secondly, the Amazon is one of the World’s most important carbon sinks. The great rainforest is responsible for more than 400 million tonnes of carbon uptake annually. However, as the forest burns, not only does it loose the power to sequester so much carbon, the previously stored carbon is also being released back into the atmosphere.
Finally, by sequestering that much carbon, the Amazon also provides the planet with a huge amount of oxygen. Most estimates place the Amazon’s oxygen output at 20% of the World’s total.

    DEFORESTATION

    Aug 23 19

    Despite the importance of rainforests, deforestation continues. Though the term can apply to natural causes like forest fires, it is commonly linked to human activities such as logging, agriculture and mining -- all important for our economy. However, by stripping the land of these resources, we must accept the consequences of our actions. Chopping down rainforests increases the likelihood of soil erosion, landslides and flooding. It also decreases biodiversity and medical resources. More than 25 percent of modern medicine is derived from rainforest plants, and only 1 percent of rainforest plant species have been studied for potential medicinal uses [source: Harris]. Deforestation also destroys the homelands of indigenous cultures and affects the livelihoods of millions of people, many of whom live in the world's poorest regions.
