Still from Plantarians, 2017, HD video, colour, sound, 9 minutes 33 seconds
Is a plant aware of what is happening around it? What does a plant see, hear, and feel as it is caught up in the food chain of all living things? Plantarians shows the lives of garden plants close-up and from unusual perspectives, questioning human-centric ideas and taxonomies of nature.
