In the trunks of the centuries-old trees of a park, a situation hovering on the border between violence and sexuality is visible, which evokes iconographically the theme of man in nature. This situation, however, cannot be determined precisely, since as soon as our curiosity drives us to step closer, the image becomes blurred. Through a mechanism employing a kind of 'counter-air' perspective, the viewer's body is rendered an interface. The virtual space turns inside-out the movement of the real space: the computer system constitutes a protective membrane, so to say, about the image, which, when transgressed transforms the proximity to distance. At the same time, the sound effects are suggestive of the observer remaining close to the events throughout.
