Material/Form Research and Sketches

Exchange of expertise

Sometimes you don’t know how to make something. For example in the past, before the WordPress Era, I didn’t know how to make a website. So I asked someone to make it for me. So I was in debt.

This particular person wasn’t a real good caretaker of plants so I developed an installation to grow a plant which doesn’t require a lot of care-taking. Adding a bit of extra water and some nutritions every few weeks or so does the trick.

It still lives and is actually flourishing.
