KNOW, LOVE, DO
Changing Nature and Us

By artist Christian Kasperkovitz (aka Elkpen)

A Los Angeles-based artist, Elkpen looks for novel ways to talk about nature to a wide audience. 

Part of my elkology practice is an engagement with the question of ….if you can name something does that lead to caring for something and does that lead to doing something? – Elkpen
