To look at a pine tree means to turn into one.
Wild Metaphysics was a group project curated at Kunsthuis SYB in 2008, featuring an evening programme and radio show in which strange data and entrancing theories were kindly invited to run rampant.
For Wild Metaphysics, experts from the field of parapsychology were being paired up with artists. On three consecutive Friday evenings, lectures and workshops open to the public were offered. The information presented during these meetings served as input for the artists. The resulting groupshow opened on April 25th. Evening programs were followed by a live radio broadcast featuring interviews and radioplays.
