When Stones Speak and Trees Whisper is a body of layered images that I have placed together with photographs, paintings and objects. Some objects are found; some are made specifically for ritual purposes.

In this process, I added layers of images on top of the initial ones, until meaning imerged to me, much as it does when performing a ritual of altar building in shamanic ceremonies. Through these altars-like images, I invite the viewer to experience these magical moment in the way I experienced them while in nature.
