In the process of creating my new series, Biophilia, I did some research on the effects that the natural environment can have on human beings. I was pleased and surprised to see there is a therapeutic technique called earthing (or grounding), which involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth.
This practice seemed to point to something that is missing in our lives. Between the crazy hours at work, family life and social media, we often leave out something essential. We end up forgetting ourselves.
This series aims to make us more aware of our habits and to make us reflect on the importance of reconnecting with our deeply rooted love for nature.
