Movement Compositions

The cyanotype prints that comprise Movement Compositions are presented as four different maps, each a specific collection of ten figures of plant movement from The 1886 book The Power of Movement in Plants by Charles Darwin. The figures are recontextualized within a community of plants as one might imagine them together in a garden or in the wild:
Movement Composition for Ten Flowers; Movement Composition for a Vegetable Garden; Movement Composition for a Forest; and Movement Composition for Ten Cabbages
