In a forest that he digitized, Simon runs. Within an autobiographical narrative, running embodies the intimate link between the protagonist and the forest, a forest that has witnessed a multitude of personal events and that is now being destroyed by a gravel pit.

Immersed in an ambivalent world between realism and dream, Simon questions the reasons that pushed him to digitize the forest. He questions his relationship with the living world and the limits of digital representations of nature.

While using technology as a creative tool, I question its role in seeking for an immaculate and photorealistic representation of the world for our memorial and sensorial perception, and how technology may encourage a form of consumption and overconsumption of nature, a nature that we threaten without any limits.

Where are the limits of digitalization, and where are our limits?
