I first wanted to explore the patterns that those burned trees would leave on the paper. I suddently realised after the first experiments that what had been left on the paper was much more than the mere pattern. It was the landscape itself, with its fields of burnt black scheleton trees. It was also a depiction of the fire itself, as the marks left on the paper evoked flames and clouds of smoke.
