“We are living in what it’s probably the most exciting time for human history. I believe the world is waking up to deeper understandings on how we can evolve and live more connected and at peace with nature. At the same time the stakes have never been higher, the risks are immense and the challenges seem imposible. That is exactly why we need to make it fun and exciting, that way we can implement new habits and truly take action.
My work is highly personal, every project is a creative challenge to ignite relevant conversations.” – Santiago Sierra Soler
