Underground rocks are easy to sell. Their stories are harder to tell!
I am trained in anthropology at the University of Cambridge, and at the EHESS in Paris. I have explored the possibilities of ethnographic methods to address various nature-cultures by working through collaborative contexts, across disciplines and practices on urban ecologies, interspecies relations and lively soils, as a researcher, activist, and gardener. I have co-curated exhibitions and workshops, and co-authored “Terres des Villes, Enquêtes potagères de Bruxelles aux premières saisons du 21e siècle” (Éditions de l’Éclat, 2017) and a growing series of picture essays on soils, among others.
An ethnographic inquiry into how two historical collections of drill core samples are written into contemporary climate discourses related to the underground.
