Dedication is a 5-screen video installation accompanied by a series of sculptures integrated into the floor. It is a paean to ancient cross-species collaborative association between plants and fungi at the roots of most plants. Mycorrhizae are usually invisible, underground root systems that form an intricate web of exchange of nutrients and allow trees to communicate with each other.
The symbiotic root systems of plants with fungi are the basis of life on the planet but are often overlooked. The complex symbiotic root systems allow for social, cooperatively functioning systems and communication between trees underground. Like a superorganism, they exchange nutrients and water, or warn each other of pests and communicate vulnerabilities in a communal exchange.
