我們對植物及日常事物的認知很大程度受著主流的意識形態和媒體所主宰。在以人為中心的人類紀,世事總是以人類的需要和欲望所被理解和呈現。

如果以植物自身作為中心來敘述,而不是我們的食物來理解,那麼我們對世界的既有認知會否被解構,從而衍生出對萬物的同理心和多元的認知?

在這個學習器中,參與者可以輸入20種常見的蔬果,搜尋這些蔬果的資料,但有別於植物學圖鑑,它不會給你慣性看到的,反之,會是該植物被忽略的角度和生命狀態的植物繪/相片。而這個學習器同時是一個數據收集器在特定情況下,是可以讓人上傳更多敘述角度,久而久之它將會成為一個後人類紀植物數據庫,建構另一種理解大自然的意識形態。

這個學習器有可能使你從確切心安進入迷惑心煩,亦有可能給你頓悟。

Our understanding of plants and the world has been shaped by the dominant ideology and popular culture. In the era of Anthropocene, the way of explaining the world is centred around the benefits and desires of human.

What if, we pick an alternative narrative to understand plants and nature, such as the perspective of the plant, will it deconstruct our established ideology of the nature? And develop a diverse and empathetic way to understand nature and the world?

In this natural history display cases alike learning device, participants can search for the botanical drawings of 20 kinds of vegetables. Yet it is not going to show the images that you’re familiar with, it will only present the minor and neglected narratives of the plants. Moreover, the participants can print out receipts of their chosen vegetables , with drawings of from the learning device, and there is a QR code for them to connect to the online Post Anthropocene Botanical Encyclopedia.
