The animation features the military recruitment office in Times Square, New York and the large-scale screen, which serves its advertising needs. The plants are rendered from drawings made with authentic military camouflage patterns. The plants slowly engulf the scene, challenging the series of absurd and mesmerising statements and images on the constantly changing screen. In order to make the animation every screen was photographed as it changed. Each plant represents approximately 80 drawings each, drawn on a Wacom tablet.
