Product details

A fern is an enchanting plant, ancient and universal. Its fronds overlap with intricate self-similar patterns, expanding and contracting. The ever-increasing crosshatch fibres are like feathers or wings depicted through phrases of outward and inward movements. They drift across one another, a choreography weaving three-dimensional impressions of buoyant leaves upon an undulating breeze. With a lineage reaching to the dawn of time, ferns inhabit the forest floor. Here it is dark, cool, rich and fertile, a place in which to hide one's treasures and one's secrets. Here is nature's cloak of invisibility.

The skeletal structure of the plant is articulated by instrumental and sampled sounds that resemble insects that take shelter beneath its organic layers.
