Artist Statement

//BLURB//
Dr. Masaru Emoto, Japan’s most popular pseudo-scientist claims he can change the crystalline structure of water simply by talking to it. He would curse and yell at the “bad” water, turning it into non-symmetrical ice, while praising the “good” water would help it beautifully crystallize. Boy, if life were only like this… Though it sounds poetic, he would be one step closer to the truth if he simply watered his plants and talked to them. According to the Royal Horticultural Society’s researchers, plants grow faster to human voice, especially to gentle female voice. Rebuffing internet beliefs, plants do not like AC/DC and Black Sabbath. Now, I don’t mean that this puts an end to the century-long nature vs. nurture debate, but I do mean that environment counts. Theorists of genetic nurture argue that even learnt behavioral traits of offspring are influenced by the parents’ nature. This means that even the genes that are not directly inherited by the children can affect the children’s genetic heritage, as what we learn can modify our DNA. Hence, while you might not be born stupid, if you talk to water often enough, you just might get there. Beware.
