“’We Float’ addresses mortality and humans’ relationship with animals and the natural world. We have been fighting a one-sided war with nature and it is important to create a sustainable future where we can coexist without harming our world. It is essential that we make peace with non-human beings as well as with each other to create a livable future.”
