The human ear only perceives a small spectrum of frequencies used by animals and plant for communication and hunting. Intrigued by this lack of experience, yet our conceptions of reality and the truth connected to this very incomplete reality I collected the nets of spiders. Who create intricate, invisible constructions that help them hunt through sensing vibrations transmitted by the fibers. Exploring their reality I collected their nets in and around the Swedish town of Boda. I view them as radios, devices and language, each species creating a different form, depending on their living environment.
