SIX Inc.

An art project that aimed to let plants “step into” unknown territory outside the Earth. From the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, the plants were sent into the stratosphere (altitude: 30,000 meters) with a balloon attached with special equipment. A documentary recorded a series of plants arranged on Earth being set away from the planet and their return back to Earth.
