Abstract
Five `mere happenings´ at the Baroa b.plantation in Latvia instigate four strands of art enquiry. They imply morphings of a plant´s name, its shape and of plant-art perception and cognition. Through a method of play as in improvisational music, a meshy constellation comes tobe with a mixture of entities playing along. The leaky loops of making/thinking include micro- and photobiologists, bio-, solar and fake labs, clay, a brain reader, ceramists,artists, designers, herbalists, alchemists,chance, a JMW Turner painting, joyful accidents, re-enactments, hand-painted photovoltaics, microbes and their fluorescent pigments and plantations. The focus of the narration is on experiences with detailed accounts of the applied protocols for in vitro plant and microbial growth,dye-sensitised solar cells and ceramix, as well as for invented gifts and imaginary solutions. By emphasizing the experiential, the reader gets a grounded notion of what a fundamental transversal and enquiry-based practice might entail that is fused by the arts. A critical review of process-based practice is provided by the notion of becoming in the theories on reality by Tim Ingold and Federico Campagna.
