Details

Experience French & Mottershead’s moving audio art work Woodland that describes your body’s slow fade into the leaf litter of the forest floor, whilst lying in the woods. This work connects you deeply to your body, and considers the biological and chemical processes that continue long after you are conscious, as you are gently subsumed by the earth over thousands of years.
