In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
Nature inspires and informs my work in all ways! I am small. Fantastic things are possible. Capitalism has wrought horrors. But to frame it as superficially as possible, if I could stare at the ocean like Roy Scheider in Jaws all day long, I would.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
Being part of a thriving ecosystem to me means that-on a systemic level- everybody gets what they need, everybody shares, and everybody supports that balance. That includes a deep attention to ecology and history.
