The Ladder in the Wood

Deep inside the Black Wood of Rannoch there is an old wooden ladder. It was left behind by a former deerstalker who worked this forest patch over thirty years ago. It was used to climb that tree to sit quietly and shoot deer. The sitting platform is long gone. Now it is almost indiscernible from the forest itself. It functions as a wooden object, which bridges the gap between the human world and natural world through aesthetic appreciation. It is a decoy for the minds desire for imaginative speculation about a different presence in that forest. Here the artists found a cultural decoy. It is a lost utilitarian object that has new meaning as a correspondent image, a photograph. The work intends to capture the viewers unique forest imagination.
