Forvandlingsrummet (Transformation)

This is a short essay further exploring transformation and the relationship between change, time, forests and gardens.

The essay was published in KAARK 23, Transformation, 2011.

My point of departure is Kerstin Ekmans beautiful venture into the Swedish forests as both natural and cultural landscape Herrarna i Skogen (2007):

“Om skogen varit – och är – ett förvandlingsrum som kan omskapa medvetandet, så är den också ett rum i ständig förvandling under betraktarens öga.” (Ekman, 2007)

(“If the forest was – and is – a space of transformation, which can change ones experiences, it is also a place undergoing continous change itself.” (Ekman, 2007, my translation))
