Uriel Orlow’s practice is research-driven, process-oriented and often in dialogue with other disciplines and people. Projects engage with residues of colonialism, spatial manifestations of memory, social and ecological justice, blind spots of representation and plants as political actors. His multi-media installations focus on specific locations, micro-histories and forms of haunting. Working across installation, photography, film, drawing, sound and gardens, his works bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.
Reason is a flower explores the relationship between art and science. This series of short interviews, part of the Thoughts On collection, presents the perspectives of six artists who relate art and science in their work, exploring environmental, socio-political issues, and the impact of their practices. Reason is a flower: Thoughts On Art and Science features Catarina Braga, Miguel Teodoro, Diana Policarpo, Marta de Menezes, the group Entangled Others composed of Sofia Crespo and Feileacan McCormick, and Uriel Orlow.
