'(Un)earthing' is an ambient dream journey; recalling memories and personal stories of homecoming and healing with plants. A lot of the once common knowledge around medicinal plants has gone lost through the violent processes of capitalism, church and colonialism, disproportionately affecting women. Therefore, remembering, reclaiming and sharing this knowledge is a personal as well as a political act. By using local, widely available plants, often labelled as ‘weeds’, we can take control over our own health as well as the health of society and the environment, and start re-enchanting the world
