forest of forgetfulness

2022

Inspired by the book 'Islands of Abandonment' by Cal Flyn and the art of mending.

Flyn explores how places that are manmade or have once been inhabited can fall to nature. It seeps in slowly through broken roof tiles or little cracks in concrete, spreads itself over surfaces and takes hold. Eventually it thrives in even toxic manmade environments. No man's land becomes a sanctuary.

 

They look neglected and decayed but they are full of growth and are a positive benefit to nature and ourselves. Is it that it is no longer under our control that unsettles us?
