Collaboration with Peter Fischer for
The International Forest Art: Systems & Cycles
The Darmstadt Forest is home to 400 wild boar, Sus, sus scofa, but they are rarely seen by visitors to the forest. The rhythm of the forest, quiet days and active nights, is captured daily for one month, revealing the invisible life of the forest.
Wild is here.
With the assistance of forester, Peter Fischer, an infrared "stealth cam" was placed near the "boar room", the secret hiding place of the Darmstadt forest boars. The camera captures film clips of the wild boars and other forest creatures as they emerge at dusk. The boars are rarely active during the day.
Boar are not naturally nocturnal but become so in the presence of humans, or when disturbed.
