Hot, humid air and a intense scent of a wood and plants, a feel like walking on forest soil, military camouflage nets covering the white cube space (6m *5m, height about 3m) and a very loud, bassy Soundtrack - those are some of the senses welcoming the visitor.
The two screen video work is showing long tracking shots of civilication, concrete, brutalism blocks, strict shapes and opposes this to tracking shots of alive and dead trees, soil, plants, the nature. Sometime they are opposing each other, sometimes not. The soundtrack was done together with composer Sascha Blank from Potsdam and director of photography Nicolas Geissler is responsible for the images which were shot in forrest Taunus, Karlsruhe and Heidelberg.
