"Us and Nature"
by Florence Wang

I consider us human and the earth have an intertwined relationship. Ever since the beginning of mankind, we have been co-existing with our counterpart, the nature.  We might think we have already conquered the earth and the nature with our interventions. However, we are in fact just part of it.
