The first reality confronts us with a strange vision. From within a forest of giant sequoias, an 86-meter-tall monolith of burnt wood rises against the sky. At its foot, a trench of black sand cuts through the ground, leading us inside the monolith.
The second reality immerses us in a quickly expanding space. We follow a small robot as it carves its way through a universe of wood, hollowing in it the shape of the General Sherman—the largest tree in the world and the greatest single-organism concentration of biomass on Earth.
Two events that, in their relation with matter and time, speak about the nature of creation. About the deep contradictions that feed human action. About the unwavering obstinance of never knowing when to stop. About tragedy and the beauty that lies behind it.
