Dezeen Music Project: Katia Mezentseva used time-lapse photography to capture the process of flowers and pine cones drying out to make this music video for Russian artist Cetranger.
Mezentseva soaked the plants in a salt water solution and, with the help of her husband Maxim Mezentseva, took a photo every minute over a 24 hour period as they dried out.
The flowers in the video shrivel and lose their colour as the moisture within them is sucked out, while the pine cones open up to release their seeds as white salt crystals form on their surface like frost.
By highlighting the range of movement in these apparently dead objects, Mezentseva wanted to draw attention to how life persists in the natural world.
"I wanted to show that everything is alive in our world," Mezentseva told Dezeen. "Perhaps it is not noticeable at first view, however if you look closely and observe longer, you can see life even in a small pine cone you find under your foot."
