Concerning Plants is a playful interpretation of the mysterious and complex networks of plant communication. The inflatable winds through the trees as if a strange root system emerges from the ground, somehow both alien and natural. It is something which has gown up above the surface to give us a glimpse of the mythic and invisible networks down below. This inflatable is inspired by mycelium and rhizome structures. The rhizome which as Deleuze and Guattari note ‘has neither beginning nor end, but always a middle from which it grows and which it overspills”
Nature Will Not Miss Us
Nature Will Not Miss Us Nature Will Not Miss Us is inspired by the Anping Treehouse in Tainan City, Taiwan. The Anping Treehouse is one banyan tree that for the past 70 years has grown over and consumed an old warehouse, breaking through windows and creeping along walls. Seeing the manmade architecture overrun with the power of one tree a person feels awe and fear. The beauty and power overwhelms us. Nature Will not Miss Us is a reminder of the power of nature and it’s ability to thrive in the absence of human interference. In the city we keep nature controlled, pruned, and potted, but we must remember that nature surrounds us.
