This amazing mechanical exhibit shows how dependent humans are on plants for all kinds of things, from clothing to food.

The three-minute show invites you to imagine a world without plants, by removing everyday items from the scene one by one, including a bowl of fruit, kitchen furniture and even the family’s clothes!

The exhibit was designed and built by Will Jackson, Paul Spooner and Patrick Bond.
