The physical boundaries humans impose between territories are not recognized by other animal or plant species. The stop-motion animation “Bower” features the plant species at risk that grow on Canadian soil but also live beyond borders. In the five-minute animation the central plant-character, a threatened aquatic plant called Bolander’s Quillwort, desperately attempts to build a “bower” (derived from the Middle English word “bour” meaning “dwelling”) using fellow plant species at risk. Its frantic efforts mirror humanity’s drive to develop technologies and organizational systems that attempt to restore and protect what we are on the verge of destroying: the natural world – our bower.
