"Is this plant poisonous? Does it grow in the Arctic only?" The questions we run into when spending time outdoors - hiking, fully aware of our senses.
"What the Plant" is a playful and easy tool that helps people to identify plants based on their visual characteristics. Targeted at hikers and those who love exploring, with intentions to spark curiosity and learn more about the nature around us.
A quick experimental project based on the field trips in the Arctic Circle (Sweden), where lots of unfamiliar plants grow. It's a great way to skip intimidating Latin descriptions and learn about the world surrounding us in a human, informal language. Possibly with some practical applications.
