Delve into the process
To reproduce the impact of the phytohormones on plant’s life we inspired by the project of Thijs Biersteker. We have choose an element (the circle) that represents a single phytohormone, a unit of time (single steps of life plant) and we represented plant’s life by warping the circles through the phytohormones impact and representing during different step: germination, maturity, flowering, fruit development, absission, seed dormancy.

Dutch artist Thijs Biersteker collaborated with scientist Stefano Mancuso to create an installation at the Fondation Cartier that shows the real-time impact of climate change on nature in Paris. This project is titled Symbiosia and seeks to promote awareness of the impact of climate change by providing visitors with a visual representation of its effect on local trees.
Plant life depends on a number of link generated by the impact of chemicals and phisiological that generate their specific evolution.
Plants need to make their organs work synchronously and at the same time to adapt to the environment. Each organ of the plant is regulated by more than one hormone, which respond to external inputs by modifying the plant’s metabolism.
PGRs plant growth regulators are an organic compound synthesized by plants, which influences their growth and development processes. Phytohormones can be divided into 5 main classes and act at different moments in the life of the plant: Auxins, Gibberellins, Cytokinins, Abscisic Acid and Ethylene.
