The sacred, magical role that art has held in everyday life since the dawn of humanity is often lost in modern society. Dancer's timely work is a quest to revive this form of art, weaving the shards of our failing culture and fragmented ecosystems into a celebration of possibility. Entertaining, full of surprise at every turn, and beautifully illustrated, Shards & Circles helps map the way home to our authentic selves.
Daniel Dancer's work as an environmental artist and educator has been shaped by his travels worldwide in search of styles of being that engender happiness and sustainability. After getting his MA degree in psychology at the University of Kansas, he left the academic world to raise llamas and pursue a career as an environmental photographer. His striking images of beauty and destruction have been published in hundreds of publications worldwide. It is precisely this interface between wild nature and devastation that most greatly informs his work. On the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, Dancer founded a model environmental community called Rowena Wilds where he lives in an earth-sheltered home made from recycled materials. He is available for slideshows, lectures and workshops.
