This virtual reality experience is a virtual greenhouse where passionate encounters between plants and humans flourish. Teasing looks begin this ecosexual affair - gases and fluids are exchanged through woundless openings in skin and leaf. Friction, moisture, and heat emerge. Embrace plant species of a Latvian rain moss and breed within yourself new sensualities of unconditional, passionate love for plants - immerse yourself deeper and deeper!

Inspired by the writings and concepts of Canadian anthropologist Natasha Myers, the virtual reality experience seeks to approach new worlds of feeling in a post-Anthropocene era. How can our caring love for the environment, like that of a mother, be transformed into a passionate sexual relationship, like that of a lover?

This virtual reality experience is more of a living sculpture than a computer game. It is a generative surrounding of sounds, digital objects, and recursions that lets your gaze 'interact' with this digital world.
