A video made through incremental collaborations in a greenhouse and machine learning software. A landscape emerges from a glacier and grass begins to grow, only to recede back under the ice. Through freeze and thaw, it slowly gives way to a densely matted greenness that is grass-like, but also not. The work continues to grow in a generative conversation between plants, AI, and the artist. It draws a parallel between the actions of biological growth and machine learning, both seeded and tended by human input. The work is quietly influenced by ideas of environmental and human justice from fiction, an entangled understanding of more-than-human relationships from social sciences, and of environmental and microbial care. This complex ecology of ‘contaminated diversity’ produces sublime encounters that threaten and enthral.
