From the "Intimate Conversations" Series
Field studies conducted at the Human-Environment Research Lab have determined that time spent in nature connects us to each other and the larger world. The studies reported individuals having stronger feelings of unity and belonging, and were more concerned with helping and supporting each other. If the same emotions are present when connecting with nature as when associating with humans, can an interaction with nature help those with social anxiety connect to others in a meaningful way?
I have blended elements or captures from both the natural world and something fabricated by human hands. It's a conversation, if you will. The work illustrates how our human-nature connection supports and fosters interpersonal communication.
