“Plants have feelings, organs and psychic abilities much more advanced than ours. ”
<The secret life of plants>. by Peter Tompkins.
This paper’s starting point is the Anthropocene (human activity’s geological and ecological impacts on the earth), anthropocentrism, by definition, explores our relationship with nature .
If the design can bring a new way of life, human beings can participate in plant communication (for example a plant suffering from insect infestations secrete chemicals that spread through the air to the plants next to it, then it will lead to their insect resistant effect, such as cyanide resistant respiration). So we can find a way to be more aware of how human activities threaten biodiversity and is thought to lead to the serious problem of climate change through the feedback from plant. So as to live in harmony with nature better.
Through this topic, I want to encourage people to be more positive and optimistic about the future of relationship between human and technology and the whole world.
This paper I will investigate on some experts’ research in professional fields as well as some non-human design in order to build a more convincing scientific background. For example, <Plant Talk> by Dan Cossins. Describe the current situation of the relationship between man and nature,then suggest to establish a new connection between human and non-human though design.
