One of the most recurrent plots in science fiction is that of a group of human beings in resistance against the domination of machines. This work draws attention to a group of beings that are already in resistance against the invasion: plants. The small ecosystems that grow between the cracks in the cement of cities remind us that we are just one more species and that at any moment we will be covered again by the biomass that your planet claims. This non-narrative videopoem is inspired by the literary trend known as ecopoetry. Nanao Sakaki, Ursula K. Le Guin, Kobayashi Issa, Donna Haraway, Nicanor Parra, Cecilia Vicuña and Santiago Papasquiaro are some of the authors whose work inspires this work.
This audiovisual project was developed within the Q10 artistic creation residence of @pikselfest in the city of Bergen, Norway.
