The work Krauten auf Gedeih came created in collaboration with the writer Isabelle Ryf. The artistic processing was based on recorded conversations during a visit to an allotment. The conversations focus on specific advice and experiences related to gardening. The conversations were spun further and embellished with noise recordings. The final audio piece consists of spoken texts as well as audio collages.
