I am an amateur poet and have a recording of a poem that I have written entitled The Arctic. I would like to have an accompanying high quality video, preferably sand art to accompany the reading and music. I can merge the video and audio once the sand art video has been made. I would like the imagery to be highly emotive, the poem is written from the perspective of The Arctic and is an appeal and narrative in her own voice. It is about the need for us all to take a stand to protect the Arctic and in a wider framework, our earth. My feeling is that I would like to captivate the audience and support the words with inspiration so that listeners will feel compelled to care and to open their eyes to the disaster that we are facing on the earth at the moment. Our earth is also deeply beautiful and so is the Arctic which I feel should remain as the last untouched frontier. The Arctic protects us environmentally and needs our protection in turn in order to continue the cycle of earth's stability. I would like the art to project the beauty that I feel when I think of the Arctic and the earth and also the strength of each individual contributing in their own small or large ways to protecting her. I want the message of group action and group voices to permeate, it does so with the music and words but will be much more powerful with the right imagery alongside them. The audio is 2 minutes long.

I look forward to hearing back from perspective artists with their accompanying quotes.
