The Train, the Forest

The Train, the Forest

We are looking at the landscape darting behind a
train window and trying to bring near and distant tree
branches into optical order while walking through the
forest. The thrill of the speed and the chaos of the lines
are confusing, leaving behind the sketches of what is
and of what imagination can combine out of fleeting
sensory data. Cracking an electronic whip, Patrick Buhr
pushes hand-drawn lines into the third dimension.
