This project is a year-long, durational work where Becs apologizes to a different plant every day through speech, sculpture, ceramic, and written text. This thesis exhibition is the culminating archive within an archive to represent and reenact the year. Forests burn around the world and we feel we can do nothing but grieve for them. But what if we apologize? Through apology we recognize wrongs and the need for change. Each apology is in itself insufficient — an expected failure that carries the hope of an eventual win and the possibility of mutual transformation. Failure is not the ability to reach a certain goal but an opportunity to look at utopia from the other side. She experiments everyday in how to become coequal kin with botanical life by confronting the harm humanity causes.
