ILLUSTRATION AND DESIGN
THE MAN WHO GROWS OBJECTS
The Man Who Grows Objects is a viral video about Thomas Land (played by me), a ficticious character that grows products in his spare time.
The project was realized in collaboration with Marcos Aretio and Stefan Kleeberger.
The simple website shows Thomas Land’s world and attracts visitors to the design conference Frisches Design in Nürnberg.
The Man Who Grows Objects also features a set of illustrations. For the project I created three drawings of home-grown products.
“Terraipodo Salatina” is a music player that is grown in streaming water.
“Pencilis Arboriensis” is a small bush with pencil crops.
“Cucurbis Necklis” is a pumpkin that grows jewellery inside.
