Arboreal Conversations

Arboreal Conversations is a merging of the art process and scientific inquiry. I am interested in seeking connections between these two methods and exploring the types of information and insights gained when they are combined. I use the idea of conversations (textual, verbal, physical, chemical) with and between trees as a jumping off point for addressing larger questions of inter-species communication, empathy, connection, intelligence, as well as my personal relationship to "Nature" and "Wildness." It is an ongoing project that began with a solo camping trip to National Forest lands in California, New Mexico, and Colorado.
