Ecomimesis is a dynamic, virtual reality (VR) environment containing animated virtual plants responsive to viewer action. that seeks to collapse conventional distinctions between inside/outside, natural/cultural, and human/non-human to explore inter-species connections between plants and humans. The species featured is Erigeron canadensis, a common urban ‘weed’ chosen for its prevalence in human crafted landscapes that is at same time often 'invisible' to most people as they choose to ignore such so-called nuisance species. Ecomimesis is inspired in part by a lesser-known text by Charles Darwin, The Power of Movement in Plants, in which Darwin documents his observations of how various plant species move as they grow. Darwin’s research laid the foundation for more recent research into the subject of “plant intelligence:” the study of the myriad ways that plants sense and respond to their immediate environment. The title Ecomimesis is a term borrowed from the writings of philosopher Timothy Morton and signifies an acknowledgment of human entanglement within nature. The animation was based on thousands of time-lapse photographs of growing plants.
