This installation is called Feed and raises ferns that can survive under conditions of extreme lighting.
The television screens provide light to the plants, which grow towards them in a constricted space, eventually colliding.

fernsehen / feed

If I could make a title suggestion for this piece; the German word for "watching TV" is Fernsehen.

I hope the plants don't put the TV's on standby , which will cost a lot of energy and increases global warming...

I wonder what a garden raised by the internet would look like.

Apparently that pessimistic culture critic that wrote television turns you into a vegetable was telling the truth after all.

What is your view on the coronavirus?
