These images are the expression of my experience of visiting deep into the forest where there was absolutely no one beside me.
Embraced by the overwhelming being, I entered an unusual state of mind in which I felt both peace and fear, and the forest was one immense singular being and also a very uneven world at the same time.
Such unusual impression I believe is built by the piles of time that are embedded in the process of a forest growing.
Deconstructed pieces are toned with the belongings of the forest such as leaves and soil, and recomposed again to emphasize such phenomenon.
