Two people move throughout the space, investigating their surroundings wearing what could be control panels attached with harnesses around their bodies. They eventually reach a backpack which one of them puts on, the other connects their control panels using long wires and the control panels subsequently turns on a fine mist being sprayed from the backpack, nourishing the sprouts growing from its shelves.

“Sprouting carriers/carers” explores the notions of caretaking and imagines the entanglement between plant/technology/human.
