The Plant Printer

kr.75.000

A machine that acts and grows like a hanging plant. Equipped with a thermal printer and a light sensor, runs on electricity and is controlled by light amount. Each day, a few centimeters of the generative plant are slowly printed on the paper tape. The amount of light dictates how many and how big the leaves on the plant grow.

Between days, a progress can be seen on the printout, as the light changes with day and night. The inorganic plant helps us understand time in longer intervals than minutes and hours, and logs the progress of our lives at the same time.

We can see life itself progress on the paper tape, reminding us to pause for a bit and enjoy the moment.

Each printer is made to order, and you can expect to receive your printer in 3-6 weeks after buying. Please message halldor@eldjarn.net for any inquiries.
