About the Work

In the periphery of an urban centre, alternative paths are created collectively through repeated usage. The work Short Cuts displays some of these paths, and focuses on their dual nature. The short cuts offer a reduced distance at the expense of safeness. The lack of light and loss of apparent direction suddenly makes the forest more threatful than the urban landscape, even though the eventual threat presumably would be faced in the latter. The work deals with conception and perception of our fears.
