The title of the video ‘Like unto each yet none alike3′ is a line taken from the poem The Metamorphosis of Plants by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from his book of the same name. From his investigation into plant form he envisioned a more holistic way of experiencing nature in which plants are experienced both symbolically and scientifically, beyond the detached classification of the Linnean system. The video presents a succession of pollen grains, seeds and plant details that appear in a continuous stream, each fusing with the next, a lineage of “supersensuous archetypes”.
