"Power lines are many things to me. They represent the expansion of the human race, they are everywhere yet hardly noticed, accepted as everyday landscape but inexorably expanding. Our species plows into nature and leave hooks that resist all but the strongest of winds, they stand impervious to snow and rain. We talk of impending doom due to our treatment of the earth. One side claims loudly that climate change is all just environmental bandwagoning, and that we are experiencing a natural cycle, the other greener side shout that natural cycles don't happen over such a short course of time, and that we must mend our ways today and not tomorrow. Would we let world economies suffer to fix our planet? Plan B as a series is meant to capture this mood, using power lines, satellite poles and wind turbines as symbols of a changing world." (Longman, 2007)
