WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
Copenhagen-based artist Jeppe Ringsted says he “collaborates with nature” to create his ethereal prints. Using the ancient Japanese paper-marbling technique of suminagashi, meaning “floating ink,” Ringsted dips nontoxic carbon black ink into various bodies of water—puddles, lakes, and oceans—and watches as swirling patterns naturally take shape. He then lays paper on the water’s surface to absorb the designs. Each piece, marked with the coordinates of where it was made, is a “testament to the potential for beauty to emerge from even the most unpredictable circumstances,” says Ringsted.
