plant perception

Plant Perception was commissioned by Noble Energy in Houston, TX. In this piece, I was thinking about how plants grow in the direction that is most beneficial to them as opposed to growing in self destructive directions like humans often do. Plant Perception reflects my interest in biomimicry, especially as it pertains to human behavior. Plastic pollution is a growing global problem, so I was also meditating on the structure of growth in an effort to envision how to design solutions that might shift self-destructive trajectory as a species. Plant Perception is intended to create an immersive situation in this conference room at Noble Energy with the hopes that plastic footprints will be increasingly factored into the decision making taking place there.
