Nieśmiałość Koron Drzew (The Shyness Of The Treetops) was inspired by dark ecology and the phenomenon of ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), consisting in the sensing of a pleasant tingling in the area of the head, neck or other body parts in response to sound, visual or olfactory stimuli. For two days, the IP Studio gallery changed into an organic-synthetic environment generated by natural and artificial textiles, and technology. The Shyness of the Treetops is a question about how the way we experience the world is changing today, and whether you need to go to the forest to feel like you’re in the forest.
