Phytovision - slow sublime

video vignettes

0:40 to 2:00

2016

"Phytovision" is a body of work that invites the viewer to adopt a phytocentric perspective, with video tailored for plant perception. These vignettes were shot in the Catskills with a slow motion camera, pointed away from more historically imaged landscapes and toward small weeds and forest flowers.
