A Defamiliarization of the Way Objects Are Seen. The art duo 431art (Haike Rausch and Torsten Grosch, who have lived and worked in Frankfurt/Main since 1996) demonstrates how contemporary art can interact with society. As the makers of personified plants, 431art has now created a first with their botanoadopt® and Pflanzenklappe®. Of the approximately 1,000 plants they’ve placed with adoptive parents over the course of their project, 100 of them present a world in which plant life is seen in a new way.
