Sprout is an object that passes on energy. It displays life as a circular system. In a fast paced society, life is often viewed as linear. As with the ecosystems in forests, energy constantly transforms and therefore lives forever. By creating balance between nitrogen and carbon, Sprout will gradually break down and serve as nutrition for a plant. After being in the pot for a year, the plant will have grown too big for the pot and it will be time to relocate Sprout and its plant outside. In the ground it will serve as a vital source of nutrition for years to come.
Sprout is a part of a series of project created by final year students in The Icelandic Academy of the Arts. The project is called Wood You? It was in collaboration with the Forestry Association of Reykjavík. For further information go to the Wood You? website.
