Pseudanthium Synthesis, 2009

Flourescent paint, live plants, black lights, performers wearing tyvek suits and headlamps, 10'H x 16'W x 8'D

In collaboration with Soo Sunny Park, installed at PLAYCUBE Mobile Exhibition Space at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH.

 

A 3-hour performance during which every leaf of every plant in an indoor terrarium is painted with fluorescent paint by performers in tyvek suits and headlamps. The plants become increasingly alienated from their "natural" state as they transform into a bionic, futuristic forest that fluoresces like plankton in the ocean.
