At the rate at which Apple manufactures products, you will need a lil’ town to house all its obsolete creations. But that discussion is for another day.
In the meantime, I want to tell you about Christophe Guinet, a Parisian nature lover and artist. An extraordinary talent who can converts old Apple products into beautiful homes for plants.
Christophe has always been passionate about plants, especially the cultivation of orchids (according to his website) — “attracted by their exacting needs and rewarded by the beauty and delicacy of their flowers.”
As he grew up, he began to worry about the world he was inhabiting: “Worried by industrialisation, manipulation and how human thought was changing.” He uses his findings related to places and seasons, to create works of art with care and a concentration close to the meditative state.
His artwork compositions reveal the beauty of nature through every day and cult objects. Through these creations, Christophe also expresses the idea that “plants do not think; they live from day to day, in a haphazard way.” It is in this spirit of the moment that he creates, with meticulous detail and patience, his unique plant compositions.
Christophe, who is also known as Monsieur Plant, created a series calledPlant your Mac! He’s converted Apple products ranging from Macintosh classic 1970 to iMac G5, G3, Power Mac G5, Macfire Powerbook and so on into sensational plant holders. Don’t you believe me? See for yourself
