The 'Plant Pregnancy' project by Alice Kim is designed to inspire people to care for plants as you would a child. To assure that her plant was well taken care of, she created a pouch to wear on her stomach. The pouch resembles the belly of a pregnant woman and is weighted with soil to help the plant grow and simulate the weight of a child.

This project created a bond between her and the plant. After wearing the pouch for an extended period of time, Kim noticed that her legs would get tired. But to her, the sense of responsibility was rewarding. As the plant grew to a bigger size, it was wheeled around in a tiny stroller, as if the plant was maturing just as a child would.
