Project Description

Spore 1.1 (2004)

“Spore 1.1” features a rubber tree plant bought at retailer Home Depot which is only watered when the company’s share values are rising. By this the health of the plant visualizes Home Depot’s financial health in an ironic way. Home Depot gives an one year unconditional guarantee on the plant, if the plant dies it has to be replaced by the multinational.
