Description

As plants can communicate between themselves, Christine Ödlund is constantly searching for ways for human to come into contact with plants. One experiment she carried out used a plasma ball, which extends an electrical charge to anything which has an electrical charge, such as human fingers. Stinging nettles also pick up an electrical charge, and the artist used the plasma ball to show the transmitting capabilities of the leaves. This is a dreamlike representation of electricity facilitating contact between both plant and man.
