In the images of Intergrowth,people and plants are arranged in a way that they are merged together as one. We use houseplants as ornamentation, something that serves a decorative and supplementary purpose. And yet, plants are full of vigor. As a pothos plant would feel its way around using the end of its vines, all plants grow, move and change. They certainly communicate and adapt, only done in a much more delicate manner than we do. They are living, breathing creatures, sharing with us the same plot of land, sunlight and air. They provide the means to sustain life on earth, while taking in pollution and providing shelter. I use these images to emphasize on the importance of plants in our lives. I hope to draw attention particularly on the subject of houseplants, and I wish for people to see them as a necessity and treat them with respect.
