wildgruen

Mandy Meißner's "Wildgruen", a plant that can move and communicate. In her view, plants need to be freed from their isolation, both in the way that they can only lean towards the sun and can't make themselves understood when they need something. Wildgruen can drive around and will hassle you via your mobile phone when it needs to be watered. The point is to actually foster the relation between humans and so-called cultivated plants that we make live with us.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
