Artist's description:

Distal means situated away from the point of attachment. Science of perception uses the term distal stimuli for objects and events out in the world about you. This works deals with the inaccessibility of reality, and in the same time our interdependency with it.

The work deals with the human struggle to master and domesticate nature and it´s unpredictable forces. Nature can in it´s chaotic and uncontrollable form be linked to the Lacanian concept of the Real, meaning the realm out-side of the symbolic and language. This is also part of the human mind. Our behavior is mainly shaped outside of consciousness, and is as such inaccessible to us. Nature is within us.

Materials used:
