Natural recall Calendar Day:
2 people / 24 hrs/ 204 Plants
Our poster is a communication of our direct relationship with plants over a 24 hour period. We were interested in finding out how many different species of plants we ingested or consumed each day. Our personal and intimate experience of nature.
On the 20th of August 2014, we kept a dairy of every plant we directly came into contact with, from the nuts and seeds on our breakfast cereal, to the plant extracts in our perfume and the sugar cane in our coffee.
We used the information to create a calendar day.
