Imagine Tree, 2011

Material: HD digital video 7mins 33 secs

Imagine Tree is a digital video work inspired by micro images of stomata from the leaves of trees near the Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, acquired using electron microscopic technology from the Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility, the University of Sydney. The work reveals the hidden process of photosynthesis and respiration of plant life to the naked human eye, asking us to once again begin a lost conversation with trees as living and breathing spirit.
