A garden for a fish is a transcientistic exercise. It aims to open up new perspectives, practices and methods to learn about the world and how to create relationships that resonate instead of dominating. It welcomes feelings and coincidences without ignoring scientific methods.
Garden serves as a method, a metaphor and as envisaged materialized outcome. I stands for a specific practice in dealing with what sourrounds us.
A gardener uses her/his senses and unconsciously learns a lot. Small signs give hints, nothing is enforced, the desirable is supported, the excessive is restricted. A garden is not static.
The fish is a zebrafish, a fish that is popular in scientific research as a model organism.
There are countless variations on how someone works in the garden. I had a garden and I think that my garden practice has analogies to transcientistic research practice. Numerous factors come together in a garden. Soil structure, lighting conditions, water balance and nutrient content are without doubt crucial parameters, but certainly not the only ones. Numerous if-then loops determine what happens and coincidences intervene.
