Power of community

We can't be all alone in this world. Our benefits are us as a community. Like in nature the web of fungi under the ground helps nutrient flow throughout the forest. When there is a part of the forest that needs minerals they are transported via small webs that are all connected. Let people take this model and begin a new world that keeps them sustainable.

The pattern connects people at the hands and feet and is continuous. The pattern can be reversed on the back side. The colors in the photos are just the markers I had to draw with. Any color can be used. It's the pattern concept that is important. The web of people can also be used as sculpture and architecture.
