Apple Computers Sprout Plant Life in Odd ‘Plant Your Mac’ Photo Series


plantmac_feat

Plant Your Mac is a strange, and in some ways ingenious photo series. Created by artist Christophe Guinet (aka. Monsieur Plant), each photo of an Apple computer transformed into a living terrarium is meant to remind us of the conflict between technology and nature.

Plant Your Mac is a project I had in mind for a while. I worked in creative agency with a team that was posted all day in front of their Macs, and I realized that we tend to forget the Reality in front of our machines,” Guinet tells PetaPixel. “Planting your Mac is a way for me to convey a message by recalling that nature exists. Let’s not forget it through technology.”

Each photo in the series is a real life Macintosh computer with a real life terrarium built inside it. These are not Photoshop creations, they’re labors of love, each of which took Guinet approximately 3 days to create from start to finish.

“Each model of the Plant Your Mac project is adapted to the requirements of plants,” says Guinet. “The system of irrigation, the substrate … all are important elements for the plants.” The final, fully living images are a feast for the eyes. See for yourself:
