Already in the 1970s, Tetsumi Kudo warned us against the calamitous effects of mankind on nature.

Yet with this grim garden of plastic waste, he offers a glimmer of hope in these dark days. Kudo grafted plastic flowers and plants onto aluminium trunks.

Grafting is a technique that involves attaching part of a plant to the trunk or stem of a different plant. This makes the plant more resilient to disease or challenging conditions.
