Collecting light at night

At first glance it isn’t evident that plants are thriving life forms, however if you look long enough you’ll find them very much alive. When we sleep we find a similar stillness, evidence of life is subtle and all seems deadly quiet. I strove to collect evidence of life while the world dreams, leaving the lens open long enough to see the movements that signify life that we cannot see with the naked eye, creating a timeline of the living.
