In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
Nature reminds me of how absurd most everything people have created is and not to dream of labor, but of the beach and sunflowers instead.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
To me, it means to ground myself in love and collectivism.
