A multimedia installation centered around a video of terrarium companions following 6 different individuals through different streets in New York. The video starts in mid-town Manhattan in the summer, then gradually moves out to industrial areas of Queens as winter approaches and the sun gets lower in the sky. As the scenes and seasons change, the plants in the terrariums are gradually replaced with plastic replicas as the terrariums become distanced then separated from their owners.
