A zine celebrating Japanese Knotweed—it’s beauty, evils, and benefits: nectar, invasive, medicinal, allelopathic, edible, erosive, adaptive. This project—through video, writing, image-making, and ethnobotanical uses like natural dyeing—seeks to complicate our understanding of the plant and the terminology (invasive, non-native) that “others” not only the species, but also the cultures and places from which it comes. The zine is ccompanied by an 11x17” collaged print of the plant.
