Ecology serves as the conceptual framework of my investigation and maps provide the visual language for my expression. I make prints, drawings, and sculptures that use watersheds as symbols of interconnectedness.

My process leads me into the landscape in multiple ways: walking into the woods and along stream banks awakens an immediate, sensory experience of place; composing images with spatial data provides an expansive and analytical geographic perspective; repetitive mark making opens a meditative path that offers insights gained through time spent with sustained focus. Together, these practices define my creative exploration about how we understand and imagine ourselves in relationship to the natural world.

My focus has been on intersections of nature and culture in places where my country has been at war: Los Alamos, Vietnam, Iraq. For the past 10 years I’ve added an environmental water remediation project in the Mesopotamian Marshes, hoping to leave something constructive behind rather than to just take away photographs from which to make these artworks. Here I originated the idea, and have led a team, to build a wastewater garden, a public art and cultural heritage site, that will provide clean water, health, and beauty to a magnificent, ancient and distressed culture.

Baja California Sur (BCS) is the driest state in Mexico and dependent on rainfall. Locally, it is said that the water does not come from the faucet, it comes from the mountain. Eighty percent of BCS rainwater evaporates, five percent is, run off, to the arroyos and only the remaining fifteen percent seeps into the ground to infiltrate and recharge its aquifers. Forty seven percent of Mexicans do not have consistent access to drinking water even though access to water for personnel and domestic use is a right guaranteed in Article 4 of the Mexican constitution.

I love to witness how trees dance with water, how they increase the hydrological capacity of place, how they fashion their forms and structures after water’s flow patterns. Some trees even make their own rain, building perfectly engineered leaves that condense the water in the air. So much of the beauty and wonder of trees is an expression of this ancient and sacred relationship, one that provides endless artistic inspiration.

I am advocating for the healing powers of water across this great country, Europe, Asia and onward. Keeping our ancestry level resources vital from the health of rivers and ocean environments to mineral water factories bringing top level ingredients to users, and to what current experts reveal that mineral water bathing can have a cure effect. I have documented this in two books, Healing Waters, Aperture and Spa Journeys, powerhouse books.

Jaanika Peerna

Jaanika Peerna’s (born in Estonia, 1971) work has always been fueled by the forces of nature but since 2017 the artist has taken on more specific approach to address the climate breakdown we are all surrounded with. Ever since she was a little girl dreaming of becoming an Olympic figure skater, ice has been close and dear to her: its toughness, transparency, beauty as well as fragility.

People often think that nature ends where the city begins. My projects are designed to allow a site within the built environment to tell its ecological story to the people that inhabit it. As a sculptor, my interest in the natural world rests both in art and science. I use art as a vehicle for translating the patterns and processes of the natural world.

​In my practice, I search for sites that provide the opportunity to make visible some of the forces at work on the site. Interested in watersheds, tides, growth and erosion, I make projects that show how nature functions in an urban setting. My previous projects have been about invisible microorganisms and their complicated relationships of eating and being eaten; spiraling hydrological patterns of a stream, mosaic of growth in a vacant lot, prevailing winds and their effects on vegetation, the flow of rainwater through a building.
