Natural Bitterness by Patrick Jones

Australian artist Patrick Jones recently worked on a project called Food Forest with his family, and “Natural Bitterness” is another project in the same spirit of uniting art with gardening or gathering: it’s “a video-poem as field guide to some of the edible weeds and wild foods we’ve been eating lately in central Victoria, Australia,” according to the description on Vimeo. A brief blog post goes into a little more detail.

As high-concept as this is, it’s also a fine poem, and I love the name of his production company: Gift Ecology Films.
