The Mirrored Message
Experimental doc. | hdv | color | 12'30'' | USA / Sweden | 2018
The Mirrored Message documents two scientists as they prototype a new device that transfers data between wireless computer networks and living plants. Observing their work from within a sealed electronics facility near Stockholm, we follow procedural steps in the device's programming and fabrication. The initially alien laboratory space slowly reveals itself as a kind of photographic darkroom, and we watch the light-sensitive production of the device's specialized circuitry. From the artificial air of this controlled lab we move to a coastal forest near the Baltic Sea, where the transmitter is installed for testing. Weather impedes the work. As the humans slowly fade from the scene, a living specimen comes online, finally addressable by a local network.
