In Search of Flora was originally developed as a form of life-writing as part of the Strandlines commission and multi-disciplinary residency at King’s College London. The work surveys transient, downtrodden and overlooked inhabitants, coexisting with the features and fixtures of busy thoroughfares in the contemporary European metropolis. Through this search for flora the work explores precarious existence and resilience in social space.
