The scale of catastrophe
is unknown.

Three women co-exist within a forest of plastic columns, experimenting with gentle but persistent acts which transform their bodies and surroundings over a six hour period.

Their collective attempts to understand the material gives way to unintended consequences, patience is required in this precarious landscape.  

‘To veer, to swerve towards... An environment is not a neutral empty box, but an ocean filled with currents and surges.

It environs.’
