"By inventing new ways to connect nature to contemporary life, the bond between people and nature is strengthened. Being concerned with a wide range of environmental stresses and wasteful practices, I link ecological issues to a diverse array of creative operations and tactics. Horticultural based installations, interventions, and performance foster discussion and generate action in the area of ecological awareness." - jeffschmuki.com
