A three-dimensional, layered depiction of a banana plant is placed into a light box. When the light shines through the thin green leaves, the representation becomes hyper realistic. The plant leaves the suggestion of being alive, trapped behind milky Plexiglas, in its wooden casing.
Growing Plants Indoors is an on-going project. The works not only decorate a living space, they simultaneously question the way we decorate our living space. And more precisely; how we take the outside world in, containing a piece of nature between the walls of our own habitat.
Every plant is based on different photographs of singular, real life plants. Just as in nature, all of them unique. Every new light box that is created marks the birth of a new addition to the banana plant family.
