Deep Cuts is an installation observing destructive and hostile deeds towards fragile environments. A mood of seizure and infestation dominates a peaceful place of habitation, from which an awkward overtaking emerges. Seemingly endless pillage and plunder is further morphed and manipulated to an irksome moment, in which things are forevermore left looking not quite right.

Deep cuts,
Down into the ever yonder,
It can be felt on the other side,
You can feel it all over.

Deep Cuts is an installation observing destructive and hostile deeds towards fragile environments. A mood of seizure and infestation dominates a peaceful place of habitation, from which an awkward overtaking emerges. Seemingly endless pillage and plunder is further morphed and manipulated to an irksome moment, in which things are forevermore left looking not quite right. Deep Cuts reflects on the inevitable chain of cause and effect, catching our tails quicker than we think.
