My interest in design began at a very young age. Coming from a family of designers, I always knew that creative disciplines ran, literally, through my veins. So my path was clear, and at the same time, absolutely unknown. The day came and went, and my very first lesson of Industrial Design back in college taught me something that I will never forget, a premise on what my profession is based upon: we as designers should always be critical, not just critics and the difference between these two lays in action. As humans, we have the responsibility not only to criticize but to be critics with a solution in mind. And that makes us game changers. Social and cultural shifters. This stuck with me, and I think it's the base of my role as a designer, no matter what I’m doing or working on. It's also the base of what I’m looking for, even though I’m not sure what it is.
How can I help?
Nature connectedness can be thought of as a love of nature, also referred to as emotional affinity toward nature. It defined as how much a person believes they are the same as nature or it can be thought of as simply feeling emotionally connected with nature.
Can these interventions and the idea of the project really increase empathy towards nature? How can this project make people understand our need to take care of nature through our everyday actions?
What are the personal behaviours actions that people take towards the environment when they relate and interact with an experience like creating their own medicine through plants
Does this project help dissolve the illusionary line that divides us from nature?
