The installation studies the presence of the spirit in matter through the animistic worldview. Every single plant, rock and tree possess a spiritual essence.

For the installation various natural elements were collected in Java, Indonesia: rocks, plants, soil, volcanic ash as well as corals and shells drifted to the beach. From each element a colour sample was extracted onto a microscopic slide. In addition, images of spirits in nature were painted on the slides with a transparent paint.

The painted spirits become visible only through their shadows, revealing so a hidden layer of nature’s reality.
