Un/Folding is a multi-medial installation consisting of a video, book, and laser-printed sheet of wood. The work refers to the traditional act of harvesting in groups and the related communication between human beings and nature. The rise of industries such as machine engineering and beverage industry affected individual agriculture in the 60s/70s, and the individual and culture. The video shows a repetitive action performed in apathy, referring to th mental state of distress: Solastalgia. This is a condition resulting in extreme environmental changes.
