Since the invention of electricity, brown coal extraction and use has had very distinctive economic and cultural meaning, being inseparably associated with an energy resource. The main aspiration here has been to broaden the meaning and purpose of this material and its context. The Descendent Forest is an aesthetic experiment aiming at a potentially new view at the ancient tree fossils; as well as about alternatives for using an existent local material left over after the transformations caused by humankind geological interventions.
