Read more about the event here.
Dear Nature is a book consisting of 81 letters to nature written over 81 days. The letters explore our relationship to the natural ecology. Part truth and reconciliation, part advocacy of an urgent need, part thoughts for future social ecologies, the letters reflect an intense period of time that John spent trying to find where here is. In parallel to the letters there are images of 81 days of growth of Linum usitatissimum plant. The text is currently being translated into French for a live pubic reading of the letters on the 26 January 2019.
