INTO THE WILD / BA / WS16/17
… the sun is slowly dipping, signalling that it is time for me to prepare my backpack for tomorrow. We have to wake up very early tomorrow, shortly after the dawn. It is going to be Day 1 of our research. Besides our gear, field guides, food and water, our clothes also play an important role. We have to blend in with the forest so we can observe the wildlife better, without shocking or scaring them of. I like what I saw earlier, when the forest showed its complex beauty, textures, colours and the patterns. They are all mixed up, so busy, so colourful and yet so harmonious. A shocking camouflage. Anyway, we are all now copying, exchanging, or mimicking each other. We are in the wilderness and no one criticises the way we dress. Who cares?! Mix it up, be fun, be wild... and tomorrow? We are off into the wild!
