    semester project

"Schattengewächs" grows and blossoms like its botanical relatives, but rather than absorbing sunlight it is powered by darkness. Only then does it start to grow and exude light, energy and freshness. By projecting light-based graphics in the shape of flowers, trees, insects or anything else you can imagine having in your flower pot. "Schattengewächs" translates the natural characteristics of the flower into pure light. It plays with the contrast between the real flower pot and the artificial lightflower. "Schattengewächs" does not have a power switch; it is automatically turned on and slowly lit up thanks to a small photosensor. It is powerd either by four coin cells or by two contacts (anode and cathode) directly from the earth in the flower pot. The material of the pot is clay and the inner parts are injection molded from biological plastic.
