Artist's Description

Stylidium graminifolium – grass triggerplant – mountain forest in the midlands of Tasmania – the flowers that grow on the tall spikes have their style and stamens fused into a trigger that is activated by insects who are then whacked onto the flower’s pollen for a thorough dusting. After a while, the trigger resets itself, ready for the next visitor.
