Using hand-drawn and found images of plants and new video production technology, Simeti’s video, set to a new score created in collaboration with composer Chris Cerrone, depicts the expansion of diverse plant life and moments of uncanny overlap, with plants palimpsest over another, creating mysterious and unfolding compositions.
