HOW DOES A GENERIC OBJECT’S ROLE CHANGE WHEN RECONTEXTUALIZED? WHEN QUANTIFIED TO EXTREME PROPORTIONS? PLANTS - PLANTED BIOLOGICAL OBJECTS - ARE TYPICALLY UNDERSTOOD AS ORNAMENTAL OBJECTS WITH A SMALL FOOTPRINT, THEY ARE USUALLY ENJOYED BY THE DOMESTIC CONSUMER IN SMALL QUANTITIES AND USED TO ENHANCE THE AESTHETICS OF A SPACE. PLANTS COMPLEMENT DOMESTIC SPACES. LIVING PLANTS ARE REDUCED TO ACCESSORIES. OUR PROJECT PROPOSES THE REVERSAL OF PLANT - DOMESTIC CORRELATION IN ORDER TO REDEFINE THE ROLE OF PLANTED OBJECTS; BY EXTREMING THE AMOUNT OF PLANTS, THE DOMESTIC SPACE BECOMES COMPLEMENTARY TO THESE GROW SPACES. WHEN A TRADITIONAL PROGRAM IS REDUCED TO AN ORNAMENTAL SCALE, THE CULTURE OF THE SPACE SHIFTS; AN ARTIFICIAL UTOPIA FOR PLANTS, FOR HUMANS.
