Winner Best Literary Travelbook

The Jury for "Best Literary Travelbook" at ITB coined us "Cartographers for the Ears". Happy heartbeat should have been one of the sounds in the book. It was a wonderful experience writing this book with Isaac Yuen. And having also been shortlisted for Best Entertaining Science Book at the German Science Book Awards, we feel that readers have followed us on our dynamic narrative journey to bridge science and senses. Thank you ITB, thank you Knesebeck and thank YOU, Dear Reader.

Learning from the Sea/ Lecture and Workshop at Okeanos Foundation for the Sea

Sharing my two years experience as a wave writer. I looked closely at the connection between forest and sea. The topography of the sea floor. Bodies of water in Japan. The transformation of a whale fall. I read Gilles Deleuze and Robin Wall-Kimmerer, Ursula K. Le Guin and Octavia Butler. I talked with Ama divers and people from the Haida Nation. I took students to the mediterranean to teach them Nature Writing and we met so many whales, that we stopped counting. For two years I kept a Wave Diary through all and everything, jotting down thought, encounters, collecting flotsam and jetsam of an interconnected earth.
