Pikatreffit - intimate encounters with plants

Pikatreffit is a speed dating event with plants.

The invitation to engage with a vegetal life form for a few minutes is at the core of this participatory performance. Together with the Finnish initiative The Hot Box, a portable performance and online art space, a room for an intimate moment with a flowering plant was created. 

The performance took place at the installation "Who Will Pollinate the Flower Clock" at Mänttä Taideviikot 2021.

After their encounters, the visitors were encouraged to write one sentence or one word on a small wooden tablet, to give a voice to the experience they just had.
