frozen-cacti-group2

I wanted to express idea of Complex relationships between nature and contemporary industrialise and computerised world. Integration of life and death into each other.
My choice of the cactus in this particular context is based on stereotypical qualities of this tropical plant growing in areas never exposed to ice and at the same time a very typical “easy to keep” house plant something that almost everyone has.
The distinctive natural appearance of the cactus is a result of adaption to conserve water in dry and/or hot environments. They are firm, have colour and content – “my cacti”, in contrast, are fragile, transparent and empty.
The glass plants are deliberately broken like cracking pieces of ice
They planted in concrete- the greatest building material of 20th century.-dead and futile at the same time.
