...Like the wind needs the trees
5 hand-held mini fans, 3 plants in pots
By Richard Krantz and Tim Dalzell

Part of the Exotic Matter-exhibition

5 hand-held mini fans are creating artificial wind, gently blowing the leaves of the three plants. A 'faked' attempt to mimic nature, but leaving the illusion fully on dispaly. Is the forces of nature directed like everything else?

The title refers to a lyric in the song "Come back from San Fransisco" by The Magnetic Fields.
