“The Garden of Derivative Paths” is an experimental short film about an entangled garden of vision and abstraction. Perceptual twists transform the garden into a psychological space of images, ideas, time, and economic fragments are shaken from both their historical and natural orders.
This impossible garden is filmed in full-spectrum (visible light, infrared, ultraviolet) and ultraviolet with a modified camera.
The film begins after hours in Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny. Monet could see in ultraviolet (UV) after an operation removed part of his right eye. The camera chases pigeons but instead catches another bird in the Columbidae family, a dove. Or rather, the camera catches a holographic image of a dove on a Visa credit card. Birds in the Columbidae family see in ultraviolet (UV).
The second garden is nearby; it is a Physiocrat estate La Roche Guyon — visited by economist Adam Smith, who took the idea of the economy as a system from the Physiocrats. They were the first to systematize economic thought, and Physiocracy itself means government of nature. In the garden we see image of UV currency features, appearing like neon lights in a casino.
