alright, here's some (very) rough sketches. they are in no way complete, just ideas. i used hypnopompias circle idea to represent the "circle of life" we are all a part of. the human hands are rooted in it to show how we are a physical expression of the great circle (i was thinking of the ELF saying "we are the burning rage of this dieing planet"). the chain, of course, represents civilization and while it binds the circle, it also binds us, since we are a part of the circle. under the hands are urban scouts words "rewild or die".
and here's a different version where the hand is holding a primitive axe. i don't like this idea as much as the one with just the two hands, but i thought i'd post it anyways.
i got a little carried away with the root system :-.
let me know what you guys think!
even if it's not for the "official" rewilding emblem, or whatever, it's still fun to see how people view rewilding in terms of signs like these. i think you can express complicated thoughts and emotions through art that you wouldn't be able to express otherwise, especially through the written word, or at least present a whole slew of messages in a much more concise way. there have been times when people have asked me to explain rewilding and i have all these visual pictures in my head that i couldn't possibly express in a short sentence. art helps me express things like this that i might not be able to otherwise.
anyone else have something?
