In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Many of my projects focus on the ethnobotany and the relationship of indigenous peoples with their biodiversity. My intention is to create an archive of this connection to understand and educate about the complexity of their lives and their territory.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

It means that we have been given the task of taking care of it. And it makes sense if we start thinking in a communitarian way.
