Out of the Forest
OUT OF THE FOREST
Speaker cables, contact speakers, water bowl for dog, tree branches from forests. Sounds from recorded and synthetically generated forests.
Out of the Forest explores how human and more-than-human interaction can converge into an artistic situation.
Out of the Forest is an attempt to respond to the following question: Can a co-existence between human and more-than-human materialize into an artistic outcome?
Out of the Forest consists of tree branches from forests that the dog I live with and I have visited. Every time the dog brings a branch home, I save it. Days become weeks become months. Over the years, an archive of the traces of the forests we have visited has slowly taken shape: fragile memories of moments of forests, a dog and a human.
