Three plants

Runo kolmesta kävelymatkalla kohdatusta kasvista.
A poem about three plants encountered by the writer on a walk.


”With the piece in question it is me looking at the relationship of one’s natural environment and technology. Technology is now not only an integral part of my life it has become a part of my natural environment. For instance if I am lost I use sat nav or google maps on a phone. And like the poem at hand I will often use online botanical keys or even google search to identify plants and birds I encounter. The one point of this that makes me worry is the commercialisation of technological in regards to augmenting negative class structures. And this is why I, somewhat sarcastically, use the descriptions from amazon rather than a botanical key. The amazon description offers a very weird and almost unsettling view of nature as commodity removed from ourselves. This disjointed feeling of the modern person having to continuously fight to remain in the world is something I try to incorporate in a lot of my work.”
