Human inability to value the role of plants on earth and see or notice plants in one's everyday life is a phenomenon known as ‘plant blindness’. Media artist Daniel Hengst addresses this phenomenon through his work, asking whether we are willing to empathize with plants and grant them an autonomous intrinsic value. Daniel’s projects often center non-human subjects and deal with the potential of digital technologies to encourage social change. In this episode we focus on Daniel’s works ‘Blooming love’ - a virtual reality artwork that explores the simulated Peatlands of Latvia and ‘Nastien & Tropismen’ - a virtual-installative greenhouse where no plants grow according to human doctrine, enabling new relationships between humans and plants develop.
