The photos and documents of The Tumbleweed, For Example apprear in the film and vice versa.

The black and white film photograph above was processed with plant based film developer made of locally collected sagebrush and tumbleweeds. It was printed as a distributed triptych to point to its pervasiveness. 

Tumbleweeds (physically, metaphorically, and symbolically) are found in every form of this work.

I’m interested in their representation of the american imagination, how they propogate in both domestic and wild spaces, their resemblence to neurons and mapped pathways, and their physical transformation of the land (among other things). 

Tumbleweeds are often the first plants to take root in a disturbed landscape and can stabalize soil for other plants to then flourish. So... I’m also interested in what we might learn from these weeds- their adaptability and flourishing in the face of disturbance.
