Plant Bus

Plant Bus is based on the playful assumption that plants experience the world just as humans do – as we yearn to travel and explore, so too, might the plants around us.

This project hopes to inspire a reflection on our relationship with plants, and uses mobility as a catalyst for conversation.

The project intends to engage community by giving humans direct control of the plants health. By powering the stroller’s watering system with movement, the device encourages the people of its context to be more active, social, and open to communication through commentary.
