There is a strong feeling here of the human made bricks and rubble, broken fencing
a landscape of mostly natural stuff but then there's, kinda, little, you can see underneath it, or, part jutting out there's a kind of manmade elements
There's a sewers underneath it

Is there a fundamental continuity between the ways matter behaves and our imaginative processes?
- Not limited to how we might imagine materials, but the materiality of the imagination…
The dynamics of matter, whether it bursts, trembles, sticks, shimmers or pulls is always as well an imaginative event.
'At the same time we experience the manmade as natural.

Our everyday encounter with images is tactile and has transformed pictorial relations into haptic ones.
Especially through technologies that give a higher than natural resolution to the world, we are able to “feel” a heightened experience of surface.'

BUT operators in and on the world.
Woodworms however aren’t things, they’re creatures…… converters that digest wood, hard matter, into soft matter, sustaining their burrowing physiques.

monstrous congregation of
different matters
and textures,
