The idea of real time art (vs. breaking news commentary) intrigues me. From the manifest:

Suspended Gardens 2, an interactive project by Alex Dragulescu [full disclosure: Alex is a friend of mine], is a metaphor that references history, borrows meanings from contemporary culture, and offers a political commentary in a subtle, playful way. It is a hybrid between an interactive Flash game, a messageboard and a simulation system rendered relevant by the current conflict ... How ironic that the technological platform that makes this project possible is an offspring of military research.

CAUSA BELLUM: This species does not need water or sunlight to grow. A single Causa Bellum plant has a total of 300 km of deep roots desperately seeking after one element: oil.

Wow, allegorical plants. God does have a sense of humor.
