Strange Skies: Cinema for Plants


I love seeing beautiful blue sky. It is soothing. Do you think trees and flowers are able to see the skies?

This is very interesting. An American conceptual artist, Jonathon Keats created the movies not for human, but PLANTS. The installation art was exhibited sometime between last February and March, in a specially built "cineplex" in New York City for seven weeks.

Keats believes "shrubs and trees know what’s happening, that they realize that the cataclysm they’re experiencing locally is truly global in scope.” So, he did it. Keats created the beautiful, relaxing movie, called "Strange Skies,"  travel documentaries displaying glorious European skies. In the exhibition, he placed, or 'seated' potted plants to watch it.

He says, “These documentaries expose them to parts of the planet they could never experience for themselves, allowing them to travel vicariously by showing them a selection of foreign skies,” Keats said. “To our untutored eyes, these horizons may look pretty, but plants are photosynthetically attuned to subtle variations in the spectrum, including those caused by atmospheric pollutants. Make no mistake: These documentaries are incendiary, and may be infuriating to many vegetables.”
