Summary

Black and white photographs taken in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and a cover shot of the sky over Sydney Harbour are combined with a short text by Michael Marder from Plant-thinking: a philosophy of vegetal life (New York: Columbia University Press, 2013, pages 127-8). Marder, thinking beyond earlier philosophers makes the point that life on earth is an expression of the relationship between earth, the ground beneath our feet and the sky above our heads. Plants are key to this expression and we can exist because of this rich green life. In the edition of this book all the individual books have different images though they all have an image of sky, an image of leaves and an image of roots. The images come from another book which was never finished, only commercially printed as a black and white proof.-Based on information from the artist.
