Regarding the other in a cross-matter eroticism.

The gardener figure is meant to represent a colonizer of the natural habitat, where according to his needs, he rules over the value of specific beings and their very right to exist. In search of a promise for a less aggressive human intervention in the very sensitive network of relations between different beings, Tyminski undertakes a study of inter-material eroticism. For this, he tries out an impossible love-relationship with an ocean. In this manner, he shows the potential of intermaterial eroticism to be a potential means of sensitizing individuals to inanimate matter and creating an equilibrium of statuses between the human being and its surroundings.
