Charles Darwin, together with his son Francis, carefully studied the movement of different species of plants, writing a treatise about their various movements. “The Power of Movements in Plants” classifies them by their types of reaction to external stimuli, and aims to demonstrate certain similarities between lower species of animals and plants.

The catalogue made by the Darwins include some circumnutation maps of entheogens. Working with two of them: Tobacco and Morning Glory, it seems that the plants' nutations appear surpassing the motion-mapping shown at the book, animating themselves as they escape from their particular condition within Darwin's research and generating an alternative code within their movement, which is unknown to us.

The piece follows a series of inquiries that I have developed around vegetal and animal agencies and the possibility of understanding the idea of resistance within Western notions and predetermined representations of history, science and economy.
