fall 2017 The film "plant-time" was created for Land Arts of the American West. The film attempts to present a non-human narrative by asking viewers to challenge or question their understanding of time and explore the idea that plants exist in a differing time-process to humans. The film has two videos running simultaneously, side-by-side. The left window shows a compilation of time-lapse videos created throughout the semester with a focus on shadow revealing a passage of time from Muley Point, White Sands, and Albuquerque. The story arc travels from sunrise to sunset with repetitive shadow stories of midday time frames, questioning a linear understanding of time. The right window acts as a relative constant, featuring a “real-time” video with emphasis on surface reflection and moving light as a point of comparison.
