Ack! Don't Touch Me!

First of all, I want to thank everyone for checking out my first international show in Singapore! Thanks to all for your support!

One thing I love about traveling is the constant flow of new discoveries and inspiration. I am exposed to the life, culture, and art scene here; it is a great learning experience.

Singapore is known not only for their big brand-conscious culture and growing art market, but also for their wide variety of wild and unique plant life.

This little weed/fern-like plant grows everywhere! Not so aesthetically outstanding, but I like that it is an active plant, and is able to respond to stimuli, such as touching, warming, blowing, or shaking.



I have known it to be the "shy plant", it hides away when touched. If I want to be specific and if I want to sound smart, I guess I would address it by its' binomial name, "mimosa pudica." The flower head is pretty, but my video does not show any so you can click on the link to find a flower on the right side of Wikipedia's page.
