In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
I am from this Earth, so any work I do is an extension of it.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
To be part of a thriving ecosystem means to relinquish the idea that anything—including myself—is separate from anything else. It is to understand the world as a place of interactions and relationships, from the scale of the forest to the scale of the human body. It is to give, accept, and give back.
