In the specific case of the nomadic plant, various organisms are reconfigured to survive in a symbiotic way, taking advantage of the nutrients that its new environment - contaminated - offers. The paradox is that this symbiosis is achieved through the union of an inorganic organism whose origin is given in the human imagination and whose manufacture is linked to the system itself that is modifying the natural environments of the earth. The nomadic plant is a species that comes precisely from the alienating processes that the planet is undergoing. It is a robot of inverse understanding, whose life processes do not obey the conditioning of the capital production structure. Its behavior, its movement and its times are determined by its life cycle of existence, in such a way that it is an organism that exists in contradiction to the acceleration of the world that has been imposed by human dynamics [Gilberto Esparza, 2010]
