The work of art, A Hand in Coral Bleaching, depicts two hands intertwined with fingers of bleached coral. The suggestion in this work of art is that human agency has played a hand in coral bleaching. The work aims to generate a sense of urgency about the loss of 50% of the coral due to bleaching over the past 27 years. The work of art seeks to conflate human agency with the demise coral colonies and to recognize the hand we have played in the process.
