Grow by Daan Roosegaarde

Een ode van kunstenaar Daan Roosegaarde aan de landbouw.

The light is poetic, and inspired by photobiology light science technologies which have shown that certain recipes of blue, red, and ultraviolet light can enhance plant growth and reduce the use of pesticides by up to 50%.
