John Olsen is preoccupied with the forces or the energies which started everything in the infancy of the planet, and he constantly scans his Danish reality for traces that testify to their continued presence. And he finds them everywhere - not only in nature itself, but also in all the scrap and litter human beings leave in it. In short, he looks not only back, but also around.
