Description:

The plants are maintained by those working in the museum. Finally the vegetables and fruits are eaten. The audience can plant and water in situ or can take plants or seeds for external activity and ingestion. These moments extend the sculpture in time and space.
The piece is accompanied by a list of instructions.

Vegetables and fruits have included: lettuce, arugula, chard, pumpkin, strawberry, melon, cauliflower, cabbage and fennel.
