Landscape as Muse

Season Two - Episode 24

Great Bear Rainforest with Diana Lynn Thompson
The Great Bear is the world's largest remaining contiguous coastal temperate rainforest. Due to its position between the ocean and the towering coastal mountains, as well as high levels of rainfall, trees typically climb to 300 feet and can be as old as 1,500 years. The richness of this rare landscape is an inspiration for Diana Lynn Thompson. Her history as a naturalist and her personal connection to the forest informs her work which comments on the way that we coexist with nature. We follow Thompson as she creates subtle and ephemeral installation works that become a living breathing part of the rainforest.
