"I was playing around with some foliage shapes in an effort to illustrate the idea of growing and abundance. The idea was a play on the word 'stop' in the 'We Stop At Zero' title, against go of living things and moving forward. I wanted the plants to look as if they were in movement,and continuing to grow. Things are assured of growing and thriving if we stopped the treat of total inhalation with nuclear weapons. I had tried this design in another color, but the green color reinforces the idea of life thriving." - Lyla Paakkanen
