Read about the The Wilding of Mars.
Human dreams of colonisation are not limited to Earth. We see Mars, untouched by Earth life as barren, treacherous, beautiful; another planet to colonise. But humans invariably become exploiters. Instead, could we imagine Mars colonised only by plants, flourishing without us? The Wilding of Mars simulates the growth of a planetary wilderness over millennia, seeded with Earth life forms. Digital flowers, harvested from a garden we can never visit, would be our only reward.
