Join us for an afternoon screening of Phytophillic, a curated programme of contemporary video art and archival footage focused on the photosynthetic among us. Organised by Ellie Irons and presented by Zina Swanson, Phytophillic was originally screened at 1067 PacificPeople (Brooklyn, NYC) in September 2015.

Ellie Irons is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. She works in a variety of media, from walks to WIFI to gardening, to reveal how human and nonhuman lives intertwine with other earth systems. Recently she has been an artist in residence at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, the Institute for Electronic Arts at Alfred University and the SVA Nature and Tech Lab.
