The SECRET LIFE of Algorithmic Plants
"knowbotiq covers this landscape with digitally printed agricultural foils, inscribing other visual narrations and time jumps into the landscape. The artistic project is inserting ornamental lines between the high-tech agriculture fields of Austrians “Pleasure-region/Genussregion” and the postcolonial plantation economies. The harvesting of fruit and vegetables is preceded by a multitude of machinic-rhythmic processes of sowing and growthing. Precarious human labour connects on the fields symbiotically with agricultural machinery in order to stimulate the plants towards an optimized exploit."
