broadcast (2020)

Plants grow slowly, from seed to sprout, from flowering to drying out. In broadcast, the sun rises and sets, and the plants cycle with it, following the light. Then, those plants die, only to return next year. My grandfather, and his father, and his father’s father planted alfalfa. They tilled the soil, rotated the crops – generational memory repeated and reiterated over the decades. Across the gallery, different timescales are exhibited, and on the screen plays out the smallest timescale of alfalfa, seasonal growth and generational reenactment shown next to one another. The sprouts move, wending their way toward the sun, as nine days pass.
