Most of us feel a certain compulsion to give people and animals priority over greenery. Plants do not talk, they move too slow for our eyes to see and do not seem to feel and think the same way humans do. The result is that we treat plants as decoration, inferior beings that we have a hard time connecting with. But what if we could start to learn their language? Will that bring us closer?
Lingua Planta is a graduation work on the possibilities of plant sentience. The smellscapes can be used on the skin, in a fragrance diffuser or as a smelling bottle as a daily reminder of plant scent communication.
