When flowers first appeared on Earth, they had no precedents around, they had to invent their living and thriving by themselves – in the essay on “The Intelligence of Flowers” (1907), Maurice Maeterlinck looks at flowering plants as inventors for their own existence. By revising simple botanical facts, and using a few “elementary observations”, Maeterlinck is seeking for the proofs of plant intelligence which are “innumerable and continual” and “especially among the flowers, in which the effort of vegetable life towards light .. is concentrated."

The research on “Flower as an Antenna and Attractor” taking place “Plants_Intelligence. Learning Like a Plant” is an artistic interrogation into how plants, and the flowers in particular, exist in the world”, or more specifically - how “plants sense and make sense of their worlds” (Natasha Myers, 2015). By exploring the intelligence of plants from the perspective of sensing as “sense-making capacity” where “learning takes place, problems are solved, and sense is made” (Powell, Sagan, 2011), this research focuses on flowers as the most active and attractive phase in plant's life. In this context, the Flower research aims to understand the plant’s unique relation to the light, which they “harness..to pull matter out of thin air” (Natasha Myers), contributing in creating their shapes and color.
