Synthetic Plants


Made of bent acrylic, Synthetic Plants participate in the everyday tradition of caring for domestic houseplants. These idealized forms become a part of a home's interior as a utopian representation of the natural world. Synthetic Plants are a hyperbole of domestication, stripping all labor required for sustaining a living house plant. The leaves, which are simple to organize, are engineered to snap into a center disc as rests on the inner lip of a standard terracotta pot.
