Beast of the forest
2003

The beast of the forest is made of garbage and rubbish lying around in the forest. The beast is an inorganic creature. Product of human hands, in the most direct sense of the word. Accumulating in an organic environment, its nature in the eyes of both human and all other small animals changes. The beast of the forest is a stack of useless and useful objects produced by man that starts to live its own life. It reminds people who or what is the real master here. Personifying a monster who lies in every one of us, it also constitutes the reflection of human activity. This is by no means a sociable and contact- friendly compilation.
