Love Plant / Telephone

Love Plant

Because of drastic changes from huge households to small ones in our recent society, the communication between parents household and the offspring diminished. “Love Plant” works both as a telephone and a digital flowerpot used just for the connecting device between parents and the offspring. This flowerpot does not grow by water, yet, it keeps its vitality by the phone call between parents and offspring. If you keep making a phone call once or more a day, it will keep vital green, yet, if your phone call occurs infrequently such as once a week or a month, it will lose its greenness, and finally withered or faded way.
