The Eden Project carries our propensity to modify nature to a bizarre conclusion. For this exhibition over 1,000 vegetables and fruits were grown and then grafted together to form “hybrids”. Drawing on such narratives as the Biblical Eden, Frankenstein, and the Isle of Dr. Moreau the Eden Project grows tomatoes from pepper stalks, cucumbers from watermelon, eggplants from tomato vines. Placed in 5’ x 5’ mirrored sided planters the symmetry of planters and the plants they contain draws on such gardens as those at Versailles and the all too human propensity to attempt to modify and shape nature to our whim.
