...relationships among humans, which we are accustomed to call ‘social’, are but a subset of ecological relations.

Tim Ingold (2000)

The Perception of the Environment


Over 3 decades I have been immersed in questions of how cultural practices and sensuous, embodied  human-environment and interspecies interactions might lead to more ethically sensitive and ecologically just human-world and interspecies relations. With an eye on Biocultural Diversity; acknowledging the inextricable enmeshment of nature and culture, I am best known for my work investigating  the role and impact of the arts in transforming "cultures of unsustainability" to cultures of sustainability.

This small website offers a view into some of the work in which I have been engaged over some 3 decades, as well as work in progress. (selected)
