Porn for Plants?

I found this press release irresistible...both for its concept and approach.

Modern conceptual artist Jonathan Keats is experimenting with entertainment for non-humans. He's developed dance for bees and is now targeting plants...with porn. Or so the release says.

He really is projecting video for the plants at a theater/gallery in Chico, Calif. But the film is of pollination. If you don't believe it, just view the trailer: Cinema Botanica's "Pornography for Plants" featuring "explicit acts of cross pollination."

This is part of something new to me, an Agrifolk Art movement.

I'd go if I was in Chico...which is north of San Francisco.
