I present two Vertimus apparatus, bending with an almond tree and a pine tree. Pieces produced by the workshops of the Maisondelaculture Bourges.
Vertimus is a project created in collaboration with Eric Badel from INRAE PIAF and Studio Décalé, proposes to share the sensations of the plant.
These slightly leaning pieces transform our body in a simple way in order to shift our way of perceiving. It is not a question here of sporting performance, but of imagining ourselves feeling like a plant, moving according to the forces and tensions of gravity. By sitting on the apparatus next to a plant living in a tilted pot and standing upright, we can at this moment share two sensations with the plant:
the perception of gravity -gravitoception- and the perception of the limits of our body -proprioception-.
