Night engulfs the forest. We sit in a physical and mental state of transition, having left the sights and sounds of the familiar but not yet comprehending the space in which we now find ourselves. A sense of anxiety that was suppressed during the day is provoked by the sounds of night, foreign to our ears and unseen.
The darkness within the forest reacts with the darkness within our own mental space. What had lain hidden is now let loose.
The Darkness Inside uses modified field recordings of nocturnal animals in northern NSW, Australia.
