In a bus, 100 strawberry plants are planted in mother earth on both floors. A video camera is aimed at a plant. The camera observes the growth process. The TV monitor is inserted into the outside of the bus wall. The whole bus is covered with lead – leaded. Only the television screen remains visible to passers-by. The “Strawberries” bus drives around Berlin for 3 days according to the above schedule.
