An interactive installation consisting of a grow light and living plants in laboratory glassware.

The experimental work consists of living plants in laboratory glassware and a grow light above the plants. The installation works with motion sensors and is triggered by the viewer's movement in the exhibition space. The longer the work is on, the more light and heat the plants will receive.
