5-minute excerpt from a 60-minute high-definition video (16:9; 1080p24). Documentation of a live video conference between one Eucalyptus in the Oakland hills and another in Sydney, Australia. This gesture aimed to open up a space in which a ‘conversation’ could occur between two Eucalyptus trees - one a ‘native’ species and the other an ‘invasive’ one - in just the kind of distance-erasing technological environment that has accelerated similar global flows of people and plants.
