MOTHERSHIP + SPIDER GIRL.

RESPONSIVE/ GROW OP / LAB / HABITAT / COMMUNITY

Both alien in heritage and character, the Spider plant is one of the best plants for cleaning interior air. Owning and tending to houseplants is a healthy activity. They help us breathe, keep us healthy, increase our productivity levels, clean the air, and boost healing. 

Mother Ship + Spider Girl is an active/passive installation comprised of a Spider Girl equipped with a portable nursery/dispensing tray  and a Mother Ship docking installation. At scheduled intervals Spider Girl will hand out young Spider Plants to willing patrons. Each young spider plant will be dispensed in a florist tube accompanied by planting and care instructions. When not in use the nursery tray will dock at the Mother Ship/mature Spider Plant  to create a suspended installation.  It’s in this  mode that additional young plants will be added to the installation.
