Brooklyn-based artist Swoon celebrates everyday people and explores social and environmental issues with her signature paper portraits and figurative installations. She is best known for her large, intricately-cut prints wheat pasted to industrial buildings in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Often inspired by contemporary and historical events, Swoon engages with climate change in the installation as a response to the catastrophic Hurricane Sandy that struck the Atlantic Coast in 2012, and Doggerland, a landmass that once connected Great Britain and Europe and that was destroyed by a tsunami 8,000 years ago.

Look, if all these people were prophets,
We were born with the truth but then we
Lost it in logic so go and find it.
Remind yourself of the timeless
because you are the planet that bred you.
And you are the language that led you.
And you are the knowledge that fed you.
So just own it.
