In a sun-less room, plants thrive using light emanating from within their own living tissue. Technological and biological merge to create a unique hybrid living system which inverts the fundamental biological relationship between inside and outside. Clusters of Equisetum Hyemale (Common Horsetail) surgically-embedded with LEDs radiate the equivalent of internal sunshine, enabling photosynthesis in darkness. Sunrise and sunset programmatically occur from within each plant, allowing viewers to navigate a field of organisms flourishing off their own internal sun cycle.
