THICKET is a landscape evocation, something fallen but reviving itself via new growth. The gothic mass reflects the asymmetrical growth compositions of nature and produced with the aid of an industrial extruder.

The felled, ox-blood carcasses attempt to remake themselves into a whole - the black wiring cluster is a reunification bid.
