One hand lighter than the other

And I don’t know which hand, the left——or the right, feels the lightest——whereas the other one perhaps feels——somehow heavy, or maybe both feel——the same to you, without one feeling exactly——identical to the other, maybe, pins and needles——a certain warmth, and other physical sensations.

While taking the viewer through a forest of birch, rowan and winding pine trees, the work explores a physical approach to images as spaces, as well as a visual translation of a physical presence to the world.

One is like an ecstatic season you flip through with stretched arms, the other like being struck by lifting a large print to enter a space.
