Trees that suffer through drought make sounds through their empty collapsed water columns caused by increased pressure within internal tubes called xylem. Xylem normally spread water through trees’ trunks, branches and leaves creating growth and producing oxygen for our world. The audio emitted from these cavitations is out of our range of hearing.
Through moving abstractions of manipulated forest reflections on water, a visual representation of the trees’ calls reveal themselves. Hints of soundwave imagery appear, and we can see their screams within the sustenance that they need to survive.
If we could hear them, would we tend to our planet’s environmental needs with greater urgency?
