A dream excursion into the corporeal underworld of a wounded man. Regenerative forces go about their business, fusing, stitching and binding, to a soundtrack of industry and nature.

Combining film and animation as agents to develop and fuse a menagerie of art forms into idiosyncratic works, Mr Fox enjoys exploring his imagination and the world around him, making associations between these levels of consciousness. Curious crafted properties, often in a state of flux, on paths of exploration with the aim of uncovering uncharted alchemical states.
