Man of Nature and Me: Research on the Boundary between Anthropology and Art
This paper deals mainly with questions of methodology by presenting a creative approach to fieldwork. It presents the fieldwork as relative to art practice, and the film as relative to art work. The paper also presents the data obtained by this method: my informant, Bogdan’s vision on nature and society. His relationship to nature and Romania is one of respect and love, and as such it comes close to animism. However, he believes that the general trend is that both nature and society are exploited, approached with predatory naturalism. Bogdan is in the friction zone of these two attitudes. His reflections on this friction point beyond the individual and reveal some of the social problems of the current Romanian society.
