When I’m with plants, I feel their presence. It’s a sign that they feel, talk, and move like I do. I find it easier to breathe when I’m being with them. And I feel that sun, water, wind, everything is together.
In order to embody such a sign of plants, I represent plants in a way that they can move like animals.
