This is an artist book that I created for a travel course to Hawaii about the art and science of conservation. It tells the story of the Kalo plant as the origin of the Hawaiian people. Throughout the trip, I have been very interested in the stories that were told about the different plants and animals and how they connect people to the environment. I think that these stories are important aspects of conservation as I notice that they play an important role in cultivating a sense of reverence and respect towards the natural world in Hawaiian culture.
This book was created with wauke paper and natural paints that I made at Donkey Mill Art Center in Hawaii, along with other materials such as watercolor and colored pencils.
