From the ruins of our previous civilization, the wire forest rises, gains roots from metal, creatures from light, and hums from buzzing coils. Conquering over old life, it feeds on what is dead and ruined, assimilating it into the living and new. In the breeze of white noise spread by rusted old radios, glints of our previous world resurface, but their data is corrupted beyond repair, leaving wandering mysteries of what once roamed the earth. In this world, technology has replaced the organic; it has become nature in the process of bringing forth the primordial reconstruction of Earth.
