Two different urban researchers, charmingly named of Field Office, made a video about looking at Berlin plants. It reminds me of how, when I arrive in a new place, I suddenly don’t recognize most of the trees, leaf shapes, anything really except a few international plants like lawn grass and dandelions.
Rather than focusing on tracking down a name for each plant, these two explorers captured something much more elusive: a feeling, not of knowing, but of wondering.
P.S. I love the green corridors in Wedding where this video was made.
