More Info Works / Coexistence


The Amazon rainforest is ‘the Tropical Rainforest’ more than any other forest in the global imaginary. And for much of the modern history, it has been emblematic of “nature” in its rawest, most pristine, unadulterated state; presenting opportunities to experience a paradise on earth. However, anthropologists and archaeologists have begun to paint a more complicated picture of the forest. As a place, it has many faces and layers of human and non-human history and changes. The region’s forested landscapes have been shaped by human populations since hunter-gatherers first arrived in lowland South America. The work tries to capture The Amazon as a multi- dimensional presence with many layers of plants, soils, stories, sounds, smells, changes, knowledges and beings coexisting.
