1. 'planting is drawing'

    A long term project that considers the act of planting as drawing, viewed from a bio-cultural perspective, i.e. exploring the dependency between culture and lands, and the adaption of the natural to the human and how the human inter adapts to the natural. The 'untitled' works are presented as 3 x single channel video projections that lead the viewer into the planted world of the Finnish forest: a man made construction. The walkway leads the viewer across peat lands that have recently been reinstated after it was noted that over drainage to encourage better tree growth had diminished the bio diversity. The stunted form of the Spruce and Pines amongst the subtle flora of the forest floor juxtaposed with the surrounding flourishing forest bears testament to the desires of man to improve production at the uncalculated cost to other concerns.
