Nature’s Switch is a film, shot over a three month period between February and April 2015. We wanted to explore how red light affects plants in a range of settings – on our allotment, on a farm, our street, our living room and in a plant laboratory, at different times during the day and night. The film is inspired by Daniel Chamovitz’s book, What a Plant knows, a field guide to the senses, which gives an amazing insight into how plants ‘see’ different wavelengths of light to keep to time.
We collaborated with composer and sound artist, Louie O’Grady and the film was edited and graded at Timeline TV North.
Nature’s Switch was commissioned by Wellcome Collection as part of On light, May 1 – 4 2015.
