This work documents the creation of a road through the woods, to make possible the cultivation of the woods. Cultivation is an important method for removing dying or broken trees, following storms. The production of wood is an equally important part, involving cutting down of old trees and the planting new ones. I work every summer as a woodmen-helper. I filmed this work in 2010 in Annberg/Austria, where some of the greatest wood-density in Austrian Alps can be found. This videoinstallationt documents through five different lenses, the vital work of the excavator, cutting down trees and removing the stumps. It puts the focus on the men-machine-nature triangle.
