Emanuele Coccia takes a philosophical journey into the world of plants and seeds. Using examples, he approaches the meaning of silence in the flora. Coccia refers to the reproduction of plants, which takes place in silence, but still requires communication – for example, during pollination by insects. The human breathing, on the other hand, is a permanent, silent connection between us and the plants that produce oxygen.
“Silence is not the absence of communication; it is the space where communication overcomes the frontiers of species.”
– Emanuele Coccia
