Ah…when the scrappy little up-starts get a mention by the big dudes!
In 2010 the deck I produced and designed, Tarot of the Boroughs: a modern Tarot deck based in New York City featuring original photography by George Courtney, was released!
Today, it received a mention in The Smithsonian magazine as part of a reflection on James Leonard’s new creation:
James Leonard (artist, Magick worker, and diviner) created this beautiful installation which uses divination to help people cope with climate change. Upon entering this womb-like structure, they are given the opportunity to ask questions such as, “Will my favorite lake still be there in 50 years?” “Will I be able to buy avocados at the grocery store when I’m 70?”
A quote from the article:
“On the surface, such small actions may seem futile, bordering on frivolous. But Leonard’s perception is correct: Psychologists have almost no evidence that data changes people’s decision-making, as I learned in research for a 2012 TEDx talk on psychological barriers to environmental engagement. Science is not our only conduit to understanding.” ~Simran Sethi
