I am interested in the relationship between humans and the land. Do we see ourselves as one part of a greater ecology?—or as separate from it? Is our role that of steward or owner? What value do we derive from land? How is that value expressed, measured and represented? I’m interested in what the answers to these questions tell us about contemporary culture; and how the answers change as we look to the individual perspective versus collective experience—or even expand out across time and cultures.
