When found in great abundance they may be used to create entire new landscapes, such as in the Titicaca Lake, while its severe shortage may be explored as a metaphor for life cycles.

This film is an output of the AHRC project "Beyond the Basket" and was specially produced for the 2011 art exhibition "Basketry: Making Human Nature" at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, United Kingdom.
