In our rapidly technologizing world, we are nudged to interact with devices rather than engaging with the mechanics behind them. Plants in particular sustain us directly, though the processes through which they do so have become increasingly detached from the average person’s daily experience. My work explores the often-hidden mechanics of plant physiology, such as the tension that brings water up a ponderosa pine stem against the force of gravity, or the coevolution of the mucuna flower’s sound-reflective shape with its echo-locating bat pollinator. I aim to create work that transforms these microscopic or invisible processes into analogues viewers can experience in a tangible and visceral way. Perhaps engaging with these interpretations of plants as entities in dynamic relationships with their surroundings will contribute to our capacity to view the world around us as less silent, and more eloquent.
