The Power of Nature

I run onto the little path and come into the old forest. The treetops form a roof high above my head. A few rays of sunshine penetrate the branches like pillars of light and make the shady green ground shimmer between the dark, high tree trunks. The place is real but seems like a story.

My degree project is about the power of nature – about the contrast between the controlled and the natural, between the powerful and the fragile, and between dreams, illusion and reality. I have taken my inspiration from grand organic fairytale environments and shapes of the nature.
