We Are Symbiotic

Single channel film, HD , 8.7mins (2020)

In a political economy of consumption and growth, we have become removed from listening to the earth’s stories. Inspired by symbiosis - the interaction between two different organisms living close together - We are Symbiotic explores the movements of fungi, sea slugs, frogs, octopuses, sea anemones, gut flora and lichen. Through a meditative video narrative, the movement of our human bodies blends with the movements of creatures, plants and organisms: opening a dialogue about alternative collaborations, consciousnesses and economies that take place at a slower pace, and teaching us to build a deeper connection with the natural world.
