Cabage Head

 Cabbage Head

We seem to have an innate tendency to make out recognizable shapes from inanimate objects. It might take its form immediately or we’ll seek it out gradually when exploring our surroundings. Sandegård has explored this innateness when he sought out the humanized figure in the head of cabbage. In the moment when Sandegård indicated the arching of an eye socket, the nasal bridge and the contour of a mouth the surficial structure of the individual leaf begin to mimic the surficial structure of the human body. We recognize the plants structure as the veins on our own body when the strain becomes visible as blood running through it, protruding on our skin.
