Let’s imagine love affairs between humans and non-human organisms. Are they dark and twisted? Tender and sweet or hot and steamy? Who’s dominant, who’s submissive? And what emerges from this coupling?
As our world becomes increasingly high-tech, with ever cleaner and smoother surfaces, we celebrate artificiality while ruining our environment en passant. The more estranged we feel from nature, the more we idealize it. We need to reconnect. And is there a better way to do so than through the sensual? Because in the end, we are nature and nature is us, and we’re all dirty.
FINGER MY FERN dwells in the desires that the non-human living world invokes in us and follows the fantasies we project onto it.
