Got Plants?

This video was made during the course Cinematic Artworks in 2020, the soundtrack Turtlesit is from a local, Tampere, musician name KeFF. The idea comes from house plants, the thought of purchasing plants is somehow troubling my head. Plants are good for the home environment especially when it comes to indoor air. After purchasing the plant, one may start considering buying the right equipment to maintain the plant’s livings. Even though there are other alternative ways to do so, as consumers, one may choose the easiest of the shelf solution, hence, more plastic products. The film is focusing on the products that come with the house plants despite the goodwill and healthy intentions. It is not about blaming the consumers, it is to remind consumers what is the price we are really paying for this piece of nature at home.
