A Garden Raised by Television

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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
