A Seed Grows With No Sound (2021)
Two channel video with audio
Duration 9m 20s 

A Seed Grows With No Sound is an audio and two channel moving image work that explores the politics of the process of collecting and extracting material and specimens from the natural world. The piece utilises archival and display methods used in conchological and botanic collections to discuss colonialism, ritual, identity, patriarchy and class that are associated with human engagement with the natural world. The audio track accompanying the moving image was produced using the Kentia palm, translating and recording micro currents of the plant through an audio production software.
