Suspicious Science

Suspicious Science is a permanent garden installation composed of giant hand-cast resin vegetables illuminated via solar power.

Commissioned by the Europos Parkas Open Air Museum (Vilnius, Lithuania) in 2001, the project responds to the country’s energy plight: 100% of Lithuania’s power comes from dangerously outdated Soviet-era nuclear power plants.

Lithuanian’s grow much of their own food in small family garden plots, but the soil, air and water have been contaminated by nuclear accidents (such as Chernobyl), and pollutants continue to threaten Lithuania’s local food sources.
