How can we get in touch with a tree?
Is it possible to get to know trees?
To hear them and become familiar with them?
How intensely, under what conditions, and through what forms of knowledge do we experience and engage with “creation”,
How is it we ethically relate to the environment?
Linking the scientific and the aesthetic ‘you are variations’ turns long-term monitoring data of tree activities into audio-visual events.
