DeForest states, “I am interested in how the environment and specifically animals benefit humans; certainly as food, clothing, shelter, and planet co-dependents, but, also, as teachers, examples of behavior, strength, and life force.  Mystery begs explanation.  Science, interactive experience, and myth can offer answers and give comfort.  We learn what we can through inquiry and then we tell stories about the rest”.
