The relationship between humans and nature is in constant change. How has this relationship changed over time?
I am particularly interested in our relationship with plants. Plants make our existence possible, but they are not necessarily regarded as living beings. Scientific studies have revealed the world of plants in a completely new light, and these studies, and the research methods used in them, also underlie much of my own work.
The world is full of secrets that we cannot see. However, we can approach this invisible and hidden world through science and art. Indeed, my works often portray the layers and boundaries between these different realities. What, after all, is reality, and how is it perceived by different people?
