Everyday to Come
Jane Benson, Everyday to Come, 2021
Benson documents the shadow play of one of the artists iconic unabashedly fake plants; artificial trees altered to look artificial, each leaf cut into an unnatural shape, such as square, to create unabashedly fake trees and a fantasy of future genetic mutations. The haunting image is accompanied by a soundtrack composed by excavating a score from within The System of Nature (1770) by Holbach a haunting philosophical work that highlights humankind’s alienation from nature and that profoundly resonates in today’s world.
