Today I’m talking to French author and artist Mathilde Ramadier about the power of observation and the importance of listening to nature. Mathilde has written about work, sexism and most recently deep ecology. The foundation of much of her writing is taking time to be aware of what is happening around us. In France, a defining moment for Mathilde as well as hundreds of French people has been the resignation of the Environmental Minister, Nicolas Hulot, in September 2018, over the lack of power of the government to fight lobbyist interests. Our conversation traversed the creative process, Freud’s assessment of the humiliation of man, to the philosophy of permaculture.
