What can we learn by observing others communicate or relate, leaving the trace of a story arch as testament to something having happened.

The Other in the relating process could be either human or more-than-human. It turns out that an Arboretum is a fine place for engaging a range of species and learning from the poise and seemingly quiet unhurried presence of trees. Magnolia, Plane and Copper Beech offered us fine metaphors with which to work.
