Grindelwald Forest / Switzerland
«Can you see the sea?»
— Walking through the usual path that we have seen so many times, suddenly the wood showed an immense expanse of water, whose waves were rippled by the wind.
A surreal, green sea: the grass blown by the air on an irregular ground. We had nothing left to do but ride those waves, taming the wind with natural surf sails, perfectly integrated into the longlined tree trunks and the surrounding environment.
The extreme integration and the work vastness inspired the visitor to “discover” it in the wood and to address it as a work of art.
