The Gardeners is an interactive installation about living traditions, the preservation of knowledge and respect for our lineage, our ancestors and our posterity. In this growing database of depth camera captures, ordinary people and houseplants are recast as mythical participants in the ritualistic passing on of mysterious knowledge. There is no urgency, no great drama or bombast. The otherworldly human caretakers simply tend to the wild garden, patiently waiting for the next group to appear and take their charge. The viewer who slows down and takes the time to observe, is acknowledged and silently invited to join the lineage.
