What is a kokedama? A Japanese art form of presenting a plant in a ‘living pot’, a kokedama is essentially a plant living in a “moss ball” that can sit on a tray, small stand, or hang from your ceiling.

An enthusiast for art, philosophy, and nature, Alaniz is a firm believer in the soft power of arts & cultural organizations. She obtained a degree in Philosophy with a concentration in epistemology. Alaniz employs these fundamentals to her work as a recent graduate in Museum Studies and Nonprofit Management at IUPUI. Intrigued with the link between the nature of knowledge and the soft power of arts & cultural organizations, she hopes to utilize this capicity to encourage curiosity and creativity among non-typical arts audiences. Art is, afterall, a seemingly borderless avenue to the highest available knowledge to be attained by anyone.
