How plants think – Rethinking human-plant relationships by theorising using concepts from posthumanism and design
Today, ecology-oriented thinking is increasing in people’s minds. However, urbanisation, with its accompanying character of environmental depletion, impacts on society, ecology, and economy. It makes me think about where places in nature are situated in our everyday lives. What is nature in our lives? In our mind now, how do we think about nature?
My project, How Plants Think is to address the question how city inhabitants can begin to recognise a new way of looking at plants, the human relationship to nature in everyday life in the urban domestic space. It is not so much about design does itself, it is about what it can show us about what it has not been done. How do plants think? How do you think? What will we, as a whole, think together?
