Created from 901 35mm photographs, Horticultural Time is a portrait of a mother with her infant which explores the politics of emotional life during the Covid-19 pandemic. It urges us to attend to ecologies of growth, presence, touch, and play, wherein creating worlds from the ongoingness of life with children becomes not only a gift, but a potential source for societal transformation.
