In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
There is this rawness and brutality of nature what I admire and what you only find in there. To me, nature represents the most cruel and the most beautiful. As well as nature’s process, its cycle of changing seasons, the need of patience.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
We as humans change ecosystems, and the ecosystems change us. It’s a constant mutual influence, a constant interaction.
