A guilty place is a concept of the Durch artist Armando. Woods and trees are especially suspect:
The edge of a wood, for example. The trees in front must have witnessed some things. The trees behind them, you can hardly blame them, they could never see anything. But the edge of the wood, the forest border, it has seen things happen. There are many forest edges, here and there, about which I know a few things. I visit them occasionally. I have been taught that I should not blame them for anything.
