The shape of a flowerpot refers to something familiar. But this flowerpot reaches a size that we are not accustomed to. Furthermore, this pot does not serve as a moveable container for a plant – it encloses a plant whose roots it does not accommodate, but distinguishes from the circle of neighbours. It plays with the perception of something familiar in a new, unexpected circumstance, it irritates and stimulates. We see a tree in a flowerpot and wonder, why it is in the green meadow, which function it has. A fascinating cause for thought.
