Puya for President (Society of Fog Desert Plants Centennial Election) :: Twin Cities Public Television and MN Original, 2015
Society of Fog Desert Plants Centennial Election reflects on the increasing pressure and competition that niche species face as their fragile habitats are threatened and their extreme adaptations to those conditions uncertain to their survival or demise. Who will rule the Fog Desert in the next 100 years? Here, the choice is placed in our hands, as each individual must cast a vote to determine which plant is most likely to survive and which plants may become obsolete. Loosely mimicking France’s national election procedure, participants are asked to read the candidate’s credentials, campaign highlights, then choose and seal one ballot in the official envelope provided. All voters receive a free “I voted, Society of Fog Desert Plants” sticker.
