A walk through the woods can be a very way pleasant to spend the time… or a very, very unpleasant one. A wrong path, a twisted ankle, getting lost in the dark, or perhaps most heart-stopping of all, coming across something scary when it’s least expected. These can all turn an enjoyable stroll into a terrifying ordeal. So here’s hoping that you never come across one of Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki’s installations among the trees – at least without warning.
The forest itself can play tricks on the senses. Is that a pair of eyes glinting from the shadows? Was it a branch that brushed up against your back or something else? What about that snapping sound? Just a small animal stepping on a twig or the footsteps of someone – or something – stalking you?
