Forest Floor both embodies Freudian notions of the ‘uncanny’ and is an evocation of the surfacing of the Kleinian death drive. In the return of its repressed ‘nature’ it is neither living nor dead, neither absent nor present but stages a duplicitous presence. It utilises both similarity and difference; resemblance (to nature) disguises the animate from the inanimate but in its approximation of the familiar and the unfamiliar it masks death by the substitute of the organic with the inorganic.

Ian Hodder, the Post-Processual Archaeologist, once did some work with the Nuba people. The Nuba believed that women were associated with the territory inside the compound and men with the land outside. Women were believed to be ‘polluting’ as were the materials associated with them such as the ashes from the hearth. Women, then, were expected to empty the ashes inside the women’s area and not to pollute the outside, the men’s area. However, Hodder observed a woman deliberately, and publicly, dumping her ash well outside the compound in the male domain.
