Stories and miths connected to living and dying on this planet are rejected - seen as primordial, antiques, disturbing. In the meantime, we are losing plant species at an alarmingly speed rate.
What if in a near-future we would develop rituals of care and symbiotic relationships between humans and non-humans? What if the seed is the symbol of renewed care towards endangered plant species?
In this video essay, a future scenario depicts a policy ritual where the human embodying the seed of an endangered plant becomes, dying and decomposing, the plant iself.
