Mimicry, 2017
02’59”, video

Mimicry (2017), a 2’59” long video with changing aesthetic elements, includes footage from an orchid factory, if one can call it that. Mimicry shows the ways in which the production of orchids, as a symbol of nature, becomes automatized in the process of producing an ever more efficient production line. The footage of a bee and the machines that encourage faster growth become integral to the natural orchid. Mimicry, in certain ways, continues asking questions about the term colonization and its further application in understanding the relationship between nature and the machine.
