Our obsession with the natural world isn’t about power – it’s about love

The link takes us to Jonathan Jones’s response to the latest exhibition at the Welcome Trust in London.  How do we view our companions on this earth?  How has this changed over time?  Is the relationship always about power;  like the critiques of “the male gaze”?  Or  it it about seeking an honest reflection and understanding.  Maybe love.

These are useful and thoughtful questions that are important as we seek beautiful and sustainable ways of life.

Why do we get a kick out of looking at animals? We’re asserting our dominion over nature – but also trying to understand and preserve it
