Drawing the wired connections that exist between two or more people either in the same space or in a different location in the world, I found out that the wires intersections look similar to the connections of the plant’s branches.

According to Lindenmayer’ s theory plants follows an L-system. An L-system consists of an alphabet of symbols that can be used to make strings, a collection of production rules that expand each symbol into some larger string of symbols, an initial “axiom” string from which to begin construction, and a mechanism for translating the generated strings into geometric structures. Lindenmayer used L-systems to describe the behaviour of plant cells and to model the growth processes of plant development.
