Artist Greg Kowalski shows in this video that there is more than one way to photograph a tree.  Its hard to say if this is a collage of many photographs or a video, which is of course a collection of many still images, but this capture seems to inhabit both worlds, moving and not, while showing us a tree while showing us something not a tree, so that our image of a tree is almost completely lacking in "treeness".  What we get instead is information about something else, a displacement of sorts, so that the tree becomes little more than the medium for the message, a foreshadowing of its possible future as another medium of messages, as a sheet of paper.
