Weeds, Alien, and other stories

 

 

The project created a system for a society obsessed and possessed by the existence of plants in a household. The project’s wit comes from the assessment of the English obsession with gardening. I found it interesting how these designs are meant to let people be more engaged with plants by having more means of communication but, the increase invasiveness of the plants into human’s daily life makes the plants into some kind of a big brother figure. Looking at “Meeting,” the project not only imagined the new interaction between plants and human but, also how such system would effect the human to human interaction. The portrayal of the designed object also show how the humans are conscious of the object even though the objects at times are a small and easily blending in the background. This is another commentary amplifying the idea of obsession by imagining a setting where they the obsession takes over every moment of the day.
