Diversity, diversity, diversity
This NJP project addresses the importance of diversity in all living things. Based on the deep ecological tenets that all life has intrinsic value and that the abundance and diversity of life forms manifest these values, the project seeks to visualise the importance of diversity in plants and humans alike.
By documenting the abundant plant and human life found in Oslo and its environs, I try to show the precious resources we should care for and nurture in all living things. The importance of maintaining and allowing diversity is essential for ensuring a good future that is worth living.
