Watch Someone Else Do It

The secret sex life of plants

Here’s a compilation of appropriated footage we (my friend Cheryl Jackson and I) put together for a plant sex installation last night (a fundraiser). The video projection was just one part of it. Enjoy (you’ll want your sound on).

    Ahem, your voyeuristic nature is showing. I guess mine is, too, since I watched and enjoyed every moment. Well done!

    Sorry, Bill, that was me. I fixed it.

    I was fortunate enough to get to experience the full installation in all its sensory delight. The sheer ability to be surrounded by growing plants on one of the coldest days of the year in Buffalo so far–at night, no less–was quite a treat, but the main thing no video can convey is the wonderful aroma in the room.

    Eliz, what’s the name of the book you had on display? I think GR readers might be as interested in it as I am.

    Elizabeth – just saw this on Yahoo today and thought of your post:

    You’re in good company!

    The book Ron mentions is Sex in Your Garden. It’s a really funny, campy look at plant reproduction. Very quirky, with pictures of bra ads and Barbies as well as plants. The science is right, though.
