This meditative film about seasonal change and transformation was originally commissioned for MW Projects's exhibition aboard the S.S. Lilac steamship. In all the shots in the film, the camera is pointed down at the ground, aligning the camera image with the projected image, effectively cutting a visual hole into the floor.

The structure is an example of balance between transitional moods and spatial awareness. The recycled wood pieces represent the interactions we have with nature and are meant to change according to the viewer's perspective. For more information, please visit www.artofplants.com.
