When people ask me why I’m interested in fake nature, I say it seems strange to me that we fetishize one of the kingdoms of life for their decorative qualities above all others. Instead of flowers and foliage, what if we decorated our homes and bodies with images of fungi? Or slime molds?

Or, what if plants wore clothes. Would they be patterned with human bodies?

I’ve seen two images online recently that might indicate that things are moving in that direction:

1. A human accessorizing herself with a necklace of fake human legs (via Vanessa Jackman)

2. A line of jewelry for plants (WSAKE,via Design*Sponge)
