Walking with Grief Traces – entangled geographies

Mazen Al Ashkar created this video art showing traces around the world of trees where people walked in Walking with Grief. Inan Nesbitt asked the following questions during one of the audios: How does a tree grieve? and How do you support it in its grief?
