Take refuge explores human presence and intervention in the landscape, ranging from the rudimentary actions of building fires, marking a path in a snowy landscape, and taking shelter in caves, to more sophisticated circumstances such as a very powerful scientific laser beam piecing into the night sky. The Classical forces of nature (earth, fire, wind, water), are presented in contention with one another, or against a human figure, alluding to our physical and psychological attempts to understand our position in the universe and the obsession with exploring, conquering, and ultimately controlling it.
