The artist created a toolkit which creates a circuit by connecting plants and humans using an electro-stimulation device, which stimulates the energy between humans and plants. It suggests that the direct energy from plants might help to enrich ourselves and our minds.
“Rethinking the latest research from scientists from Stockholm University (Sweden) and their calculation, according to which plants are getting extinct more than 1000 times faster than predicted, I became inspired by a fictitious scenario of the future, where plants would become rare. Perhaps so rare, that their energy would be the most precious and the most expensive energy. Or, in my own term, divine.”- says B. Kasperaitė.
The toolkit rethinks the possible communication between humans and plants, the role of the pleasure industry for humans, and the future scenarios.
