TREEHU MANA I is both a research-project and video-work. With practices and technologies of listening it „confrontes ourselfs with the silence of nature“ (Christopher Manes). Listening is seen as an experience that has the potential to open ourselfs towards the unexpected. It is seen as method that requires exposure and vulnerability and aims to unlearn a language based idea of being entangled with the environment. TREEHU MANA I is an invitation to rehearse awareness

that we are speaking while we are listening.
