Forest Mythology

Folklore and ritual connect man to his landscape, dancing through the liminal zone between the everyday and the spiritual. Kiedler is a forest wilderness devoid of the history of mythology coursing through the ancient boreal zones. It is a prosthetic landscape - a graft - where the connection to the mythological and ceremonial practices of native man has never been established. Mythology can be thought of as a way of expressing intangible truths, and forest mythology has its roots in a primal response to the immersive environment of the forest. This is not a wilderness of bracing physical exposure like the mountain, but instead a dark internal wilderness of quiet psychological exposure.
