Long-term project I Am a Forest upholds an ethic of interdependence across generations, cultures and species. It aims at weaving together art, territory, living trees and human community.
Started in 2015 with botanical drawings, since 2017 this project has involved seed-gathering, tree propagation and wildlife/art workshops with the local school and other communities. In 2021 I Am a Forest focused on birdsong, music anthropology and archaeology. Most recently, funding from the Arts Council of Ireland allowed a blast of willow research.
A forest is a collective being.
