Innovative Angle on Plant Watering

September 8, 2009 by


In his piece, Selfish & Devoted, Deger Cengiz, explores the boundary between experimental design and conceptual art. Cengiz physically connects a galvanized steel watering can and a pot to examine their direct relationship.


The angle of the water pouring into the pot has a direct relationship to the angle that the plant consequently grows when the watering can is at rest.



Cengiz’s Chaise-Lawn, available for $750 from Voos Furniture, is an “alive” lounge, mobile planter, and human transporter. 30″h x 18″w x 63″d constructed of wheel barrel, wood, and sod grass.
