four turntables spinning botanical worlds make us wonder what plants sound like

christophe guinet, aka mr. plant, aka monsieur plant has continued his quest to plantify everything. over the years, he’s made a batman mask made of bark, a macintosh classic with a bonsai bursting out of it, NIKEs and reeboks that no one will ever wear (but some will pay $1000s for). the function of these pieces are limited outside the lens of photography and well-lit shelves, but still there is something magic about them. his latest project, spintable, makes you wonder what different plants might be singing if only we could hear them.

I hear rhapsody in blue

these vintage turntables still spin, but instead of projecting gershwin’s rhapsody in blue, they simply turn a botanical world around and around. monsieur plant uses 100% natural, stabilized plants for his pieces — some of which are available for purchase on his website.
