Inspiratiebron: The egg resembles a planet on which human beings have invented innovated ways to enhance the quality of their lives. However, more complicated problems evolve through the adoption of innovative scientific methods, practices and products and the planet must embrace a new attitude to be saved.
An option could be the return to the traditional soil cultivation methods which don’t negatively affect the soil’s and plant’s DNA thus no nature’s disaster takes place. The planet is endangered and it needs all of our help.
The Egg resembles a planet in danger. Plants grow out of motherboards. The ice in the poles melt down. The plants and the seeds are altered as time goes by.
My proposal is related to the invention of new methods of cultivation and production in our own gardens, more friendly to the human being. Just like resuming the cultivation of lettuce in our farms.
The cultivation of a garden is necessary today since we have all been cut off from our natural environment and we live in big cities where we are surrounded by mortar and glass. How could we create our own gardens and paradise as a society? How could we coexist in a garden and how each one of us could actually contribute in this effort?
Through the performance, I share small plants grown by biological seeds and I invite you to create our own paradise, our own happiness.
The seeds originate from Greece, they are biological plants, have their own history, they were lucky enough to be cultivated in Eindhoven and symbolize the meaning of sharing the idea of the garden.
