Plant-in City at the Mark Miller Gallery

Comment

Dear backers,

We started off the holiday season with a bang! On November 14th we finally had the privilege of an opening event to the Plant-in City exhibition that you all helped us make at the Mark Miller Gallery in New York City.

Thanks to everyone who came out and saw the project that night, we had a great turnout and heard amazing feedback.The irrigation demos from the iPhone were in full effect and our plants were chirping all night long, filling the gallery with lush greenery.

Check out some beautiful pictures of the installation as it glows at night.

The exhibition is up through Dec 16th, so stop by if you haven't had the chance yet. If you selected the Building Block or Magnet reward during our Kickstarter campaign, you may also pick it up there. If you don't pick up your reward, we will send it directly to you.

Update #14

We got a gallery for our show!

Comment

Dear backers,

We have exciting news here at the Plant-in City shop. We have secured the Mark Miller Gallery for our art installation! Mark is a huge supporter of the arts, and active within the Lower East Side community. We are sending big thanks to Mark for allowing us to take over his gallery with a full Plant-in City installation.

We are in full production mode, designing and building an interactive environment for the gallery—check out a photo of our working model below. The opening will be in mid November and we will send exact dates and details soon.

For those of you who await your reward Frames, please remember we are incorporating them in the art installation and they will be sent to you after the gallery show is over. Most of the other rewards (magnets, blocks, LED lights, etc) will be shipped out by the holidays and for New York City locals you guys also have the option to stop by the gallery then, check out the Plant-in City installation and pickup your reward—just give us a heads up before if you plan to.

See you guys soon,
Huy, Jon, Carlos

Happy labor day, we're working too!

Comment

Dear backers,

Sorry for the radio silence over the summer. Have no fear, we have been really busy working on Plant-in City!

We've almost finished hand crafting the rewards for some of you, but we're playing with some of the building blocks as part of our inspiration and exploration process! So enjoy this video while you wait and help us brainstorm some more!

We're also closing in on a gallery space and we are looking forward to make an announcement regarding that soon, so stay tuned.

Thank you for all your support, and have a wonderful labor day weekend,
Huy, Carlos and Jon
