Why should artificial plants look like the real thing when the real thing looks really real?
Designers: you have the liberty to 'play god' and create new varieties of plants! To illustrate this I’ve taken the initiative by creating the first artificial plant that is not telling a lie, it's artificial and it's not trying to pretend it's not.
My artificial plant is not static either, because the leaves are arranged on a thin rubber matt, so one can change the shape once in a while.
- Now that's something God hadn't thought of…
- Yes he did: by inventing Frank Tjepkema!
