zine / print design / research

It has become a popularized idea in non-indigenous societies that humans live in a secluded place that is separate from a natural place. The deep ecology philosophy values this lost interpretation of man and nature and encourages people to view themselves as a piece of nature rather than the ruler of it. Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess coined the term deep ecology in 1973, but the shift in framing nature came long before then.

In this series of zines I call Influencers in the Wild, I attempt to answer questions about why we hold onto these perceptions of humans as separate from nature.
