An artificial summer rules the greenhouse. Carnations are tended to by workers’ hands. In a multitude of splendid colours they grow towards the sun, until they’re ready to fulfill their cut flower destiny.

Carnations is an audiovisual meditation on movements within a carnation nursery close to my home.
