‘Disconnect and think nature!’ proclaims artist Christophe Guinet, aka Mr. Plant, in regards to his latest botanical art series. ‘Plant Your Mac’ seeks to denounce our exceedingly tech-connected society by integrating elements from the nature directly into some of the world’s most recognized devices — Apple products.
Mr. Plant has converted a series of Macintosh computer models — mostly ‘vintage’ units from the 1990s — into bespoke terrariums custom designed for different plant species.
These computers — emblems of the early technology age — have been re-imagined as pots and physically adapted for the particular plant it hosts. The ‘Plant Your Mac!’ project invites viewers to ‘disconnect’ from the tech-obsessed world and consider the integration of nature in our lives.
