Plant-based presents work that imagines the subjects of the Plant Kingdom as more than silent objects. Given that scientists no longer consider the theory that plants can send and receive information as an idea from the lunatic fringe, a growing body of evidence reveals the secret lives of plants. Artists step into speculate on what information are plants sharing with each other. Have we misunderstood stalks of corn and aloe vera? Have we overlooked cacti and morning glories?
Artists offer alternative theories to how they see flora, flowers, leaves, trees, stems, stalks, petals, vegetation and the mysteries of the plant world. In sum, these artists make the argument that vegetable life is as deep, mysterious, and alien to us as any planet in the solar system.
