The title is taken from an obscure genre of 17th century painting: Forest Floor Paintings (or Sottobosco), which heralded a first attempt to place plant specimens into a “real” environment as opposed to a vase. Inspired by the juxtaposition of the real and the imagined, my film takes the form of three plant studies, in which the plants, images of the plants, and their envisioned environments are intertwined.
