This zine begun with reflecting on the way trees communicate and how they live together. It proposes a way of thinking about trees as sentient beings and asks what we can learn from them. Looking at the shapes and textures found in tree bark, fungus and leaves as works of art sculpted by nature is at the core of the publication. The images you can find in the publication are all original artworks combining drawings, photographs and digital collages.
