• S. Podophyllum Receives the "Critique of Pure Reason"
  • 2020
  • Plant, desk lamp, microcontroller
  • 12 x 12 x 12 in
  • Table lamp modified to "blink out" the bitstream of Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason." Each character of the original text transmitted to S. podophyllum as a series of light/dark flashes, e.g.:

    H ↣ 01001000 ↣ Off/On/Off/Off/On/Off/Off/Off

    The process is repeated indefinitely. Over time, the information of the book is woven into S. podophyllum as its sole source of energy.
