Phytography dives into the rich and varied world of plant chemistry. This collection of organic "objets trouvés" demonstrates how nature generates multiple creative solutions, each one structured intricately. Through the application of a simple chemical process, the selected leaves, petals and stems have imprinted their own images on the film's emulsion. Shapes, colours and rhythms whirl across the screen drawing the viewer into a world beyond language and speech.

Karel Doing is an independent artist and filmmaker, whose practice investigates the relationship between culture and nature by means of analogue and organic process, experiment and co-creation. His work has been shown worldwide at festivals, in cinemas, on stage and in galleries. He is currently a lecturer at Ravensbourne University London.
