池田雅子
森林生態学調査員・アーティスト


娘とし、妻とし、嫁とし、母とし、家族を支える池田さん。合間を見つけては、森林の生態調査のために早朝から山々を忙しく駆けまわります。池田さんが森林生態学という科学の視点から森と向き合うようになったのは、ご自分の病気がきっかけでした。人生の淵に佇んだ時、彼女を元気づけた豊かな自然。御自身の経験と科学の視点の両方から、人の心と森林とのつながりをひも解きます。


IKEDA Masako
Researcher in forest ecology, Artist


As a daughter, a wife, a daughter-in-law, and a mother, Masako is busy caring for her family. Whenever she finds time in the early morning, however, she rushes to the forest to continue her research work. She overcame her illness with the help of the forest, and it made her decide to turn to it from the scientific perspective of ecology. In her darkest hour, she felt safe only in the forest. Both from her own experience and a scientific perspective, she will give us new insights on the relationship between human minds and the forests.
