DESIGN + STORY





SYNOPSIS

Ecosystem Inside ÷ Ecosystem Outside = Balance

The modern world’s increasing distance from nature has left us disconnected from the natural world. Therefore, I chose to express this relationship between human well-being and nature by drawing parallels between how the ecosystem in nature can be reawakened by an ecosystem inside our body. By taking you on a journey through the chakras, I hope to better your senses about your relationship to mother nature and how we can only begin to heal her by starting within ourselves.
