In the spring of 2019 I attended a Tree Sound Walk organized by French artist Karine Bonneval, who works on the topic of human-plant relations. She was as artist-in-residence at the Berlin gallery, Gru_nd with her project, De’jardiner, or De-Gardening. We spoke about her work in finding ways to help humans share empathy with plants. As Karine states, plants don’t have eyes or ears but they can feel and see and listen. They just use other tools. Many of her works involve creating ways to bring out the sounds of plants so we as humans can listen to plant lives.
