As the camera moves among various
images of trees,
they pass through a series of interwoven cycles
both physical and conceptual.
PHOTOSYNTHESIS is a film that examines the
the figurative and the non-figurative
The pastel drawings of trees evoke abstractions
contained within nature and the film becomes
an aural and visual, rhytmic dance.
