'We are not Plants' brings together the research of Dr Monica Gagliano, the poetry of Vivienne Glance and the videography of Darren Vassallo on a collaborative work that explores what we can learn from plants and how they use water.
Monica's research focuses on key aspects of the ecological processes by which organisms are able to gather information on the variable conditions of their surrounding environment in order to survive. Drawing on this and combined with Vivienne's poetry and Darren's visual artistry, 'We are not Plants' explores the way plants seek out and share water; how some of the most ancient of plants, the mosses, are adapted (unlike us) to survive without water; and asks how willing we are to adapt our thinking to ensure our survival into the future. Can we find the solutions in our own minds?
