“Formation of the spit reaches into prehistoric times. It was exposed to erosion by wind and waves all this time. It was only preserved due to immense human effort to protect it with fortification and forestation.” (Unesco)
Electro-acoustic radio opera entitled Iden uses the case of temporary geographical phenomena of Curonian Spit, listed as UNESCO World Heritage, to reverse the relation between vegetal and human to a deep time of complex and interdependent, society/community, established by a long-lasting geological and biological evolution. Beyond the discourse of human dominance.
