3. Biophilia, Urban Living and Digital Depletion: How to Reconnect with Nature and Those Around You
Biophilia, Urban Living and Digital Depletion: How to Reconnect with Nature and Those Around You is part interactive manual, part inspiration source, that intends to discuss the multiplicity of benefits that nature can have on our physical and mental health particularly for those living in cities. It’s about the importance of taking time away from the screen and embracing tactility: whether that’s feeling the soft petals of a rose, the peeling bark of a birch tree or noticing the texture as you turn the pages in this publication. I illustrated, designed, wrote and handmade the risograph zine in an edition of 50.
