Upside down lamp in Nat's Garden

In London, there is Nat's home. He has been living in his house forever - and this is not a vain word.  Once inside, one is not anywhere else anymore. This is like a universe of its own. The garden has become a jungle and a spiders' shelter. The grass is generously green, the bark of the trees is growing funny and natural installations found a space here and there. Nat seems to live in the leaves of the trees and of his books. He is the soul of this very oxymoric territory : flegmatic wilderness.

A book maker, a craftman, a petsound drawer, an expert of the content tables, a print and digital collage  master... he finds and collects cultural traces of an evolving life without losing a sparkle of time and composes with this material, the  unique editions of his artist books. 'Upside down' or 'reverse' are not good enough words to qualify Nat's art perpectives: 3Dness, even this of invisibility belongs to it. Anyway, Nat's got it -

Are you a fast fish or a loose fish?
