The work "l:h =n" demonstrates an effort to incorporate plants into a grid of surface divisions, resulting from the titular mathematical formula. This pattern proposes a harmonious and rhythmic division of space, put forth by Polish avant-garde theoreticians and artists Katarzyna Kobro and Władysław Strzemiński. In the subsequent video sequences, various plants are shaped using threads to fit into the grid outlined by the title pattern—the division of the frame. This process distorts the natural shapes of the plants, placing them in strange, unnatural positions. Similar to garden designs for urban greenery, where natural plant forms are adapted to our aesthetic preferences through trimming and grooming, ensuring they conform to our tastes. The work features indoor plants that function as decorative elements in our interiors, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the space.
