Percussionist Rubén Orio and photographer/painter Lore Stessel investigate their common fascination for wood. As a material, wood is omnipresent in our daily life. In addition, it has the extraordinary capacity to grow in every direction; it can contract and expand – it is alive. In their practice, Orio and Stessel examine the apparent likings between man and wood; the veins, color, capabilities to grow and transport fluids. In their thought experiment, they consider wood to be much like the human body.
