Savanna seeks to shed light on the connection between the human psyche, technology, and the ecosystem and answer the ancient question, why do humans feel so removed from the rest of the ecosystem?

This stone age vegetation management evolved into agriculture, and the social, psychological, and ecological repercussions of agriculture are impossible to understate.
