Hyper-terrestrial is an inquiry into the materialities of the land and the porosity of our being.

The forest can be seen as a place for extraction, exploitation and resources, as means to reach our techno-utopias. At the same time, it can be thought as a place of emancipation, of coexisting without borders between our bodies.

We’re indulged in science fiction, not realizing, it’s already real. What is fiction, is life, what is virtual, might as well be here.

The vibration of the mud, the forest and the wetland surround us. Movements and materials, all become together as we go deeper in the woods.
