The Moynalty Steam Threshing Festival marks every harvest with a great celebration of ancient origin. Nós first took part in this tradition in 2013, making a sanctuary of straw bales and steel rebar. Twelve months later, the rhythm of the seasons brought us back.

In a field of freshly-cut crops we sought to create the experience of walking though a forest of stalks, each one a rebar skewer piercing a twisting pillar of bales. The columns huddle together as they rise to the corner of the field, marking a precisely-angled grid that speaks a language of planted rows while echoing age-old, cosmic alignments.
