At the movies, we gaze into the lights and shadows on the screen to be transported into another world. As in Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, these sights are but shadow images of the things themselves. The plants screening at this outdoor cinema, are cultivated native plants, synthetic replicas of nature. Unlike Plato, I court the shadows, embrace imitation, and invite you to Plato’s Drive-In.
