Ruth Maclennan, Treeline (2021)

Treeline is a collectively made film compiled from hundreds of hours of footage of forests submitted by people across the world. From a patchwork of disparate individual contributions (sent in by scientists, ecologists, artists and members of the public alike), Maclennan traces a sinuous green line that stretches from the wild woods of North America to the rainforests of the Amazon to the copses of middle England and the scrublands of Africa, as well as myriad places in-between.

Read Beyond the Trees by Mariam Zulfiqar and Dr David Edwards, who consider the wider botanical, cultural and geopolitical resonances that are opened up by Maclennan's work.

Treeline was commissioned as part of the online exhibiton In The Forest Something Stirred which can be visited here.
