Something is being created in a backyard studio that already exists or rather existed: a cactus field in Syria. The photos of the landscape are measured and categorised from all angles, a visual whole is divided into its parts in order to be reconstructable somewhere else. The cacti come from the 3D printer and sometimes there’s a booming sound in the yard, like an airstrike.
