As part of its ongoing projects, Cream Co. uses plants: as references for seeing time pass, as barometers of light conditions and, since 2010, as the primary currency in G.E.E.E. projects. The seemingly simple use and propagation of plants, in an indoor studio, is unpredictable at best and a big mess at worst. Growing edibles with decoratives indoors, without pesticide, became a breeding ground for vermin. Soil grows fungus which attracts more creatures. Watering plants in containers with traditional drip-trays can have the unneighborly consequence of water seeping through the floor onto a neighbor’s desk. The plants, so seemingly cheerful, by 2013 had become fertile vermin hosts that overwhelmed the studio. So, now, Cream Co. works towards cultivating, growing and sharing plants that are easy to propagate. Cachepots
One-of-a-kind containers, cachepots, serve as ornamental receptacles to house and conceal delete an ordinary plastic pots. Plant Forms
Observations of studio-grown plants become carefully rendered drawings and then precise plans for the construction of structures made with left-over paint. Hydrangea Forms
These forms made of papier mache mixed with paint derive, in part, from observational studies of hydrangea plants. Here, paper and paint become structures that map an uncanny relationship between paintings and plants.
