2022–2023, Forest matter, participatory installation

The artwork is exhibited in room K348 on the 3rd floor of the Mylly building.


Come inside. quiet chamber.

Image: the red of dying blueberry leaves soft squish of pine earth.

Hands dialoguing with birch arms coaxing in, poking out, coaxing in, poking out

a womb, a holding space, a hovering lung, erasure by snow.

Slick cold of glassy bounds, blurring bodies.

Rocks scratched out of darkness into wet heft of blanket green.

Close your eyes.
