Juggernaut is a self-contained habitat for one living plant. Three blown glass enclosures provide a hydroponic environment; the plant’s roots are submerged in nutrient-infused water, while LED lights supply the necessary illumination.
The word ‘juggernaut’ is derived from an ancient Sanskrit term, ‘Jagannatha’, which describes an image of Krishna that was carried in processions on a huge cart in Hindu celebrations. Devotees would throw themselves beneath the wheels of the cart, their bodies crushed by an image of the creator.
