Flat Houseplants

Vacuum-formed PETG, plants, soil, resin
2017 - 2019

 

An exploration of house plants as a category of furniture objects. This project turns them into flat aesthetic props while leaving their whole structure exposed. A series of plants are unearthed, soaked in glycerin (for preservation), and trapped between vacuum-formed plastic molds of themselves, suspended above a base of soil and epoxy. The plastic is welded together with a solvent and airtight. After several months, the plants have discolored but remained supple.
