The purpose of this section is to share with you my self-shaped learning journey, boarded on the vessel of the
Open Master's program - a grassroots community providing a support structure for self-directed learners.
I am on a quest to translate the magic of the Wild into film, using the lens of food.
I want to experiment and learn in the field of visual storytelling, deepen and explore my connection to the Wild within and around me, entering a process of "re-wilding". I aim to expand my understanding for food, its colourful expressions throughout different cultures and learn about the interaction taking place between human and nature.
Diving deeper into the edible world. Gaining advanced skills in the preparation of food while exploring different food cultures, cooking techniques, diets and nutrition.
Deepening skills in filmmaking and photography. Through online-based courses and collaboration with other artists I will work on a series of short documentaries and print magazines.
Exploring my connection to the wilderness around and within me, through adventuring in nature, gaining experience in ancestral, primitive and modern skills.
