"Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and celebrate. But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond."
-Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
Our work was created in response to the ever-changing environment and our own relationship with the landscapes we are connected to disappearing and taking new forms. Our intention is to create an archive of this moment in time, honoring the medicine and wisdom of sentient forests that live many centuries beyond our lifetime.
We started this series to deepen our connection to the land. As we followed our longing, the trees drew us out into the forests, and we became a vessel for their Songs.
