In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
Nature is everything. From nature flows the heart of my inspiration. It is a substantial and perpetual stimulation for my sensitivity, shaping and enriching my work.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
Such an ecosystem would mean that human beings would place a high value on nature, without predatory behavior. That would create an environment that thinks long-term and reuses: nothing is lost, everything is transformed. A thriving ecosystem is a collective challenge, it’s up to us to realize.
