Art & Botany: 'Lightweeds' & Illuminated 'Trees'

October 18, 2012

London-based artist Simon Heijdens grows plants out of light—illuminated trees, weeds, and flowers with limbs and leaves that flutter, grow, and propagate. And he plants them in unexpected places—not a forest or a park, but an indoor room or a concrete corner. He's interested in nature's fluctuating narrative of growth and decay, and his work transposes these interactions onto constructed environments.
