Under Everything takes the form of a journey in text and image through a familiar urban landscape in pursuit of a reconnection with the natural world. The series consists of intimate portraits of weeds flourishing against the odds which have been layered during the developing process with plant material, leaving marks and imprints which obfuscate the images to create new layers of meaning. The result of a multispecies collaboration, these vegetal apparitions become images of eldritch entanglement: both threatened and a threat, either hopeful visions of the future or ghosts of a damaged present. The text and image hone one another, weaving in parallel through familiar streets. Affected by a heightened perception of urban nature, our narrator finds themself entangled within nature’s cycles, unearthing the human being’s animal self and ancestral histories, and allow themself to be swept up in the ecological grief that comes with awareness.
